Mac Gearailt (Uáitéar): Cath Ruis na Ríg and twelfth century literary and oral tradition.
In ZCP 44 (1991), pp. 128–153.
Examines the early (or ‘Book of Leinster’) and modern Irish versions of Cath Ruis na Ríg, and argues that the former is an entirely new version of an existing tale from which the superior latter version is derived. It is suggested that the author’s (an LL compiler) intention in reworking that archetype was to bestow greater prominence upon Conall Cernach.
