    Manuscript sources
  1. Chatsworth, Book of Lismore (at Chatsworth since 1930), folios 148–157 (facsimile foliation, 148a–157a); published in facsimile: R. A. S. Macalister (ed), The Book of Mac Carthaigh Riabhach otherwise the Book of Lismore, Facsimiles in Collotype of Irish Manuscripts V (Dublin: Stationery Office for Irish Manuscripts Commission 1950). The Book of Lismore was temporarily deposited in the British Museum by its owner, the Duke of Devonshire, to allow Bugge to do his edition.
  2.

With this Bugge compared Dublin Royal Irish Academy, 23 G 20 (MS 211), 98, written by , Mícheál Ó Longáin, 1786–1814 (for a description of the MS see Catalogue of Irish Manuscripts in the Royal Irish Academy, fasc. 5 (ed. J. H. Delargy and Kathleen Mulchrone) 541–59). Bugge notes that other versions are found in Dublin, Royal Irish Academy, 23 M 47 (MS 973, see Catalogue, fasc. 22, 2781), 23 K 43 (MS 482, see Catalogue, fasc. 10, 1292), 23 B 21 (MS 184, see Catalogue, fasc. 4, 502), and 23 K 46 (MS 38, see Catalogue, fasc. 1, 120), but he does not use them. Variants are taken from London, British Library, Egerton 106, written by , William Lynch, , Richard Tipper, , Seón Mac Solaimh and , Edward O'Reilly 1715–17. (For the MS see O'Grady and Flower, Catalogue of Irish Manuscripts in the British Libarary, ii (London 1926, repr. 1992) 329–41).
  3. Bugge edits the poems not found in the Book of Lismore from 23 H 18 (MS 707) with variant readings from Egerton 106.

CELT: Corpus of Electronic Texts

Sampling Declaration

All editorial introduction, translation and indexes have been omitted. Notes have been omitted except where they elucidate an editorial decision. Editorial corrigenda are integrated into the electronic edition. Additional verse from manuscripts other than the Book of Lismore and printed by Bugge as running sub-text is included.

Editorial Declaration


Text has been thoroughly checked and proof-read. All corrections and supplied text are tagged.


The electronic text represents the edited text. The editor's punctuation has been retained, including lower-case letters following a period, and the absence of quotation marks. The editor's divisions of words have been silently changed to bring them into accord with modern practice. All compound personal names are segmented and capitalized in accordance with CELT practice.


There are no quotation marks in the body of the text.


Soft hyphens are silently removed. When a hyphenated word (hard or soft) crosses a page-break, the page-break is marked after the completion of the hyphenated word.


div0=the whole work; div1=the editor's numbered divisions; paragraphs are marked; passages of verse occurring within them are marked lg and l, and are embedded in a separate body; passages of verse supplied from MS 23 H 18 and printed over several pages in parallel with the main text are here presented as continuous text; page-breaks are marked; MS folio breaks are marked. Witness list is contained in an unnumbered div in front matter outside div0.


Names of persons, groups (dynasties, tribes, peoples etc.), places are tagged. Non-Irish words are tagged. Cardinal and ordinal numbers greater than three are tagged.

Canonical References
