Anonymous. Esposito: “The text of the Psalm is written in long lines in a large and beautiful semi-uncial Irish hand, [note 12: Compared with the beautiful rotund hands of such early MSS. as the Books of Lindisfarne and Kells, the writing of our fragments appears degraded and betrays at once its late origin. The same thing is to be said of the ornamental initials] the ordinary letters being nearly a centimetre in height, and the capitals sometimes double that”.
The memorandum in the lower margin of f. 2r, printed and translated by Esposito and printed in the catalogue description, is in Mícheál Ó Cléirigh’s hand.
Irish scholar, historian and scribe.
A note has been added at the bottom of f. 1r, Ex libris Conventus de Dunnagall, which Esposito suggests is “possibly in [John] Colgan's handwriting”.
