(1) The loss of leaves may have meant the loss of a title heading, but it is uncertain if the text is treated as a separate unit or part of a continuous narrative. See Caoimhín Breatnach, ‘Oidheadh Chloinne Uisnigh’, Ériu 45 (1994). John Mackechnie, Catalogue of Gaelic manuscripts in selected libraries in Great Britain and Ireland (1973) suggests that one may distinguish an intermediary tale which he calls Fochunn loingse Fergusa.
