McLeod (Neil): Fergus mac Léti and the law.
In Ériu 61 (2011), pp. 1–28.
Studies the saga of Fergus mac Léti, focusing on the version in the opening two sections of Cethairṡlicht athgabálae, and argues that §1 was composed in strict verse together with §2 with the purpose of illustrating the law of distraint. Includes the restored text and English translation of §1 of this version and of §2 of the Old Irish commentary version (which is also argued to be composed in verse), and supplies an additional section of the commentary version omitted in D. A. Binchy's edition in Ériu 16 (1952), pp. 33-48 (discussion in Appendix).
