Hoyne, Mícheál, “The political context of Cath Muighe Tuireadh, the Early Modern Irish version of the Second battle of Magh Tuireadh”, Ériu 63 (2013): 91–116.
Two versions of the Second Battle of Magh Tuireadh are extant: an Old Irish version in British Library Harleian MS 5280 and an Early Modern Irish version in RIA MS 24 P 9. Through an analysis of the latter text and its manuscript context, and drawing on the evidence of Bardic poetry and other historical sources, this paper attempts to identify the political context in which the Early Modern Irish version was composed. It is argued that it was produced c. 1398 for a branch of the Mac Diarmada family and that it reflects the contemporary political struggles in which they were involved.
