    • O Daly has stated in her edition that “the dating of the language presents considerable difficulty”. The verse uses Old Irish forms for infixed pronouns and no independent pronouns occur in the text. With regard to the prose, she remarks that “there is nothing [..] I think that would conflict with a date c. 900”, noting also a number of Old Irish forms.
