Late Old Irish.(4)n. 4 “The absence of rhetorics and the length of the poems point to a comparatively late work; on the other hand, the language, consistent throughout, points to the end of the OIr. period, and the story [...] is given in the LL saga-list. All these considerations would suggest a date early in the tenth century”. David Greene, Fingal Rónáin and other stories (1955): 2. On the verse Greene and O'Connor remark that it “appears to belong to the Old Irish period, [but] there are some rhymes (fo-roígéne: fogéba: cúaine: úairi) that point to a later date”.
