The manuscript is the work of more than one scribe:
  • pp. 90-99. Gwynn notes that “it is not easy to say how many hands have been employed”. At least one scribe appears to be identified in the colophon at the end of Cath Muige Tuired Cunga (p. 99b16), which states that Cormac Ó Cuirnín wrote it in Mag Eithne (‘Plain of Eithne daughter of the Phantom’) for his companion Seán Ó Glaimhín. O'Donovan identifies the plain as a place south of Ballyshannon (Co. Donegal)
  • pp. 99-110: Another hand (anonymous) was responsible for pp. 99-110 (Gwynn).
