Supplement to the Book of Leinster
Sixteenth-century manuscript folios. Although it is now bound together with the Book of Leinster, it was not originally part of it. In his facsimile edition (1880), Robert Atkinson distinguishes between three sections which he designates Q (pp. 377–396), R (pp. 397–408) and S (pp. 408–410). For a recent discussion of section Q, see e.g. Sharon Arbuthnot, ‘Some accretions to genealogical material in a manuscript boxed with the Book of Leinster’, Zeitschrift für celtische Philologie 55 (2006).
