Surviving textual versions begin with an incomplete copy in the great Clonmacnoise manuscript, Lebor na hUidre (LU), itself a work of long-drawn-out composition with scribal input from the eleventh and twelfth centuries. Other copies in later fifteenth-century manuscripts enable scholars to complete the work. This text, designated Recension I by scholars, shows many internal marks of reworking and of later additions so that one hesitates to describe it as a literary product with any high degree of finish (O’Rahilly 1976).
