Additions:
  • A Latin note written in Anglo-Irish script and dated to the 15th century occurs at the end of the manuscript (col. 400 inf). It reads Iste liber in se continet centum lxv folia, suggesting that the original numbered 165 leaves.(1)n. 1 Hans P. A. Oskamp, ‘The Yellow Book of Lecan proper’, Ériu 26 (1975); William O'Sullivan, ‘Ciothruadh’s Yellow Book of Lecan’, Éigse 18 (1981).
  • Sometime during the early 16th century (1510 x 1530), Ciothruadh mac Taidhg Ruaidh, usually identified as belonging to the Mac Fir Bhisigh family, adds a footnote (now only half-legible) to cols 380–81, in which he gives the title of the manuscript as <Leabh>ar buidhe Leacain ‘The yellow book of Lecan’.(2)n. 2 Hans P. A. Oskamp, ‘The Yellow Book of Lecan proper’, Ériu 26 (1975): 102, 116, 119.
