The text of Serglige Con Culainn in the Dublin, Royal Irish Academy, MS 23 E 25, f. 43a, is headed in somewhat faded ink: "Slicht Libair Budi Slani" ("According to the Yellow Book of Slane"). It is unknown whether other texts were copied from the same manuscript, although Thurneysen assumes that this may well have been the case.(1)n. 1 Rudolf Thurneysen, Die irische Helden- und Königsage bis zum siebzehnten Jahrhundert (1921): 30, 414; ‘Royal Irish Academy’ in Irish Script on Screen – Meamrám Páipéar Ríomhaire...
