Part of

early Irish legal texts
The first portion of the sixth and final section of Dublin, Trinity College, MS 1336, covering cols 710*-831. According to the cataloguers, this part “seems to have belonged originally to one and the same volume” (Abbott and Gwynn). In addition to the leaves numbered by column, there are two small slips (one inserted after col. 787, the other after col. 799) and the verso of the last leaf bears a 17th-century inscription.
