Origin, provenance
The folios originally formed a distinct manuscript. John O'Donovan suggested that they represent a fragment of the late 14th-century Book of Uí Maine (RIA MS D ii 1).(1)n. 1 John O'Donovan, The tribes and customs of Hy-Many, commonly called O'Kelly's Country (1843); T. K. Abbott • E. J. Gwynn, Catalogue of Irish MSS in TCD (1921): 78–79. This hypothesis, however, has since been questioned and discredited.(2)n. 2 T. K. Abbott • E. J. Gwynn, Catalogue of Irish MSS in TCD (1921): 337; John Bannerman, Studies in the history of Dalriada (1974).

Gwynn states that this part of the manuscript is largely the work of one scribe, probably Lúcás Ó Dalláin, whose name occurs on p. 196b (sup. marg.) and col. 222. Additions include a note by Seán mac Torna (col. 33); the material supplied by two later hands on p. 189; additions by a late hand on p. 195; and again, p. 227.

Table of contents
Legend
Texts

Links to texts use a standardised title for the catalogue and so may or may not reflect what is in the manuscript itself, hence the square brackets. Their appearance comes in three basic varieties, which are signalled through colour coding and the use of icons, , and :

  1. - If a catalogue entry is both available and accessible, a direct link will be made. Such links are blue-ish green and marked by a bookmark icon.
  2. - When a catalogue entry does not exist yet, a desert brown link with a different icon will take you to a page on which relevant information is aggregated, such as relevant publications and other manuscript witnesses if available.
  3. - When a text has been ‘captured’, that is, a catalogue entry exists but is still awaiting publication, the same behaviour applies and a crossed eye icon is added.

The above method of differentiating between links has not been applied yet to texts or citations from texts which are included in the context of other texts, commonly verses.

Locus

While it is not a reality yet, CODECS seeks consistency in formatting references to locations of texts and other items of interest in manuscripts. Our preferences may be best explained with some examples:

  • f. 23ra.34: meaning folio 23 recto, first column, line 34
  • f. 96vb.m: meaning folio 96, verso, second column, middle of the page (s = top, m = middle, i = bottom)
    • Note that marg. = marginalia, while m = middle.
  • p. 67b.23: meaning page 67, second column, line 23
The list below has been collated from the table of contents, if available on this page,Progress in this area is being made piecemeal. Full and partial tables of contents are available for a small number of manuscripts. and incoming annotations for individual texts (again, if available).Whenever catalogue entries about texts are annotated with information about particular manuscript witnesses, these manuscripts can be queried for the texts that are linked to them.
