In ZCP 51 (1999), pp. 125–129.
Challenges the view that the Táin was written as a complete text in the 6th or 7th c. and advances the thesis that recension I represents the first attempt at producing a written text of the epic, which was subsequently reworked and literarised in recensions II and III.

In ZCP 49–50 (1997), pp. 847–877.
Argues that in the older versions of the Táin Latin words and phrases were used as a means of metatextual guidance, or narrative markers, and therefore they are part of the compositional technique of its compiler, who drew upon the Hiberno-Latin ‘eclectic’ exegetical method to create the Táin macro-text.

Identifies a theme of Indo-European mythology in the association of water bodies with the loss and renewal of life and knowledge seen in the death of the two repositories of the Táin, Roán and Roae, and the subsequent preservation of the saga by Fergus mac Roich, thus arguing that this episode is not an incidental addition, but an inextricable part of the larger framework of the narrative.

Ó Con Cheanainn (Tomás): Táin bó Cuailnge: roinnt nótaí ar leagan I.

Discusses the question of the interrelationship of the MSS containing recension I of Táin bó Cuailnge, and concludes that the text of Lebor na hUidre is superior to that of the Yellow Book of Lecan. This view is supported principally by the textual analysis of the reference to Cú Chulainn lighting fire for Conchobar occurring in YBL 19r b 35-45 but absent in LU: it is argued that the loss by homoioteleuton detected in LU at lines 4945-46 by R. I. Best and O. Bergin 1929 (Best2 877) can be better explained as an interpolation by the editor of the YBL version of recension I, probably Giolla Íosa Mac Fhir Bhisigh, who used LU.
