- Ó Cathasaigh argues that the two manuscript versions derive from a common ancestor written in classical Old Irish. While he allows for the possibility that the latter may be a reworking of the text made in the Middle Irish period, “we can be reasonably sure that the content of the story is much as it was in the O. I. ancestor of L and H”.(1)n. 1 Tomás Ó Cathasaigh, The heroic biography of Cormac mac Airt (1977): 115–117.
