- (Unidentified)A transcript made from this copy by Edward O'Reilly, now in the Royal Irish Academy (?)(1)n. 1 In Edward O'Reilly, A chronological account of nearly four hundred Irish writers with a descriptive catalogue of their works (1820), O'Reilly tells of “a very fine copy of this poem ... in the collection of the Assistant Secretary [i.e. in his possession]” (p. lvii). Todd suspects that O'Reilly was merely referring to "a transcript in his own hand-writing made from the copy in H. 1. 15", which by 1848 was present in the Royal Irish Academy. Todd does not seem to have been aware of further copies of the text in RIA B iv 2 and NLI G 131.
