- The main scribe (anonymous) was previously identified as Giolla Íosa mac Donnchaidh Móir Mac Fhir Bhisigh,(1)n. 1 Nessa Ní Shéaghdha, Catalogue of Irish manuscripts in the National Library of Ireland (1967). but based on a wider comparison of scribal hands, Tomás Ó Concheanainn has identified him as the latter's son, Tomás Cam Mac Fir Bhisigh.
- The last two items (cols 997-98) were added by someone who names himself Áedh Óg.(2)n. 2 Nessa Ní Shéaghdha, Catalogue of Irish manuscripts in the National Library of Ireland (1967). His identity is uncertain, but Tomás Ó Concheanainn suggests that he was probably a son of Ciothruadh Mac Fir Bhisigh, who in the early part of the 16th century (?) had the original Yellow Book of Lecan in his keeping.(3)n. 3 Tomás Ó Concheanainn, ‘Gilla Ísa Mac Fir Bhisigh and a scribe of his school’, Ériu 25 (1974): 170.
