- Middle Irish Early Modern Irish
The version in the Book of Leinster is Middle Irish. Gerard Murphy also dates the version in the Duanaire Finn to the Middle Irish period. John Carey, however, has shown that in its received form, the latter poem supports an Early Modern Irish date and lacks linguistic clues that an earlier poem from the Middle Irish period had been reworked. Without the existence of the LL copy, the poem could not “persuasively be dated earlier than the thirteenth century, and even a later date would be difficult to rule out”.(2)n. 2 John Carey, ‘Remarks on dating’ in Duanaire Finn... (2003): 16–18.
