Origin, provenance
Aisling Byrne (2013) has argued that the inclusion of the Irish adaptation of the Expugnatio Hibernica together with marginal notes by one Moris Mac Gerailt (Maurice Fitzgerald) elsewhere in the manuscript point to a Fitzgerald readership. Related marginalia are found in the preceding part of the composite manuscript (pp. 250, 365 and the final page).
