Ó Riain (Pádraig): When and why Cothraige was first equated with Patricius?
In ZCP 49–50 (1997), pp. 698–711.
Rejects the identification of Cothraige with Patricius (cf. A. Harvey, The significance of Cothraige, in Ériu 36 (1985), pp. 1-9), and argues that this equation results from an 8th-c. manipulation of Tírechán’s facts with the purpose of endorsing Armagh’s interests in Munster and Leinster.
