Editor's Preface

COMPERT CON CULAINN.


The story called The Conception of C Chulainn has
come down to us in two different versions, which may be
distinguished as version I and version 11.^ Of these version
I was preserved in the lost Book of Druim Snechta
Version II, which
(first half of the eighth century).
also bears the name of Feis Tige Becfoltaig (The Passing
of the Night in Becfoltach's House) represents an enlarged
form of version I and must be later (perhaps later eighth
_

or ninth century)
The text of version I is preserved in six MSS., but in
the earliest of these, Lebor na Huidre (U), the concluding
passage has been erased by the Interpolator^ and replaced
by the sequel of version II. Three other MSS., Trin. CoU.
Dublin H. 4. 22 (H), R. Ir. Ac. 23 N. 10 (N), and Brit.
Mus. Egerton 88 (E) give the text of version I without
often has better
additions or material alterations, but
spellings and older forms.
In the fifth MS., Brit. Mus.
Egerton 1782 (W) the text has been subject to a freer
treatment, and our last MS., R. Ir. Ac. D. 4. 2 (D) goes
even farther in this respect.
Compert Con Culainn was edited by E. Windisch in
and
Irische Texte, I (Leipzig 1880), p. 136 sqq., from
W. A reconstruction of the original text of the Book of
Druim Snechta was attempted by R. Thurneysen in the

(Dublin 1929), p. xvi sqq.
2 Followed by the complete text of D.

HNE

by the Interpolator, is given from


the concluding passage of version II, which the Interpolator
introduced instead, has been added in brackets. At the
end, where
is defective, the text is supplied from the
MSS. containing version II.
In a small number of cases, where a comparison of
with
shows that the latter MSS. provide a better and
older text, the readings of one of those other MSS. have
been adopted.
These deviations from U are accounted
for in the notes.
But slight alterations in the text of U,
for the sake of the normalization of the spelling, are not
indicated.
Whenever U has an older and a later form of
the same word along with one another, the former has been
adopted throughout ; thus olchenae is the only form, not
archenae ; Emuin, not Emain lurchuiriu, not lurchairiii.
Final ~e and -i, -ae and -ai are distinguished according to
the O. Ir. use, in unstressed syllables -nd is replaced by -nn.
Double final consonants (as in iss and mace) are written
single.
In pretonic do-, ro-, no-,fo-, etc., the vowel adopted
is 0, not M.2
The actual readings of the MS. in all these
and similar cases will be found in the earlier editions.

^ The two texts known of Version II or Feis


Tige Becjoltaig
are found in Br. Mus. Egerton 1782 (W^) and R. Ir. Ac. D. 4.2 (D^)
immediately after version I.
- Initial h before vowels is only written when it is etymologi-

cally justified.

AIDED OENFIR
The Death

Only One

AIFE.

a story belonging to
the later Old-Irish period, probably the later ninth or
the language does not point to an earlier
tenth century
time and the character of the retorics is not very old.
Of the earliest version^ only one text has come down to
us
it is found in the Yellow Book of Lecan, 2i4a-2i5a.
It has been edited by Kuno Meyer, ^ with an English
translation.
On this the present edition is founded. As
Meyer's text can be compared without difficulty, it did
not seem necessary to register all the deviations from the
MS. text.
They are of the same nature as in Compert
Con Culainn. But, as the orthography of the Yellow Book
of Lecan is later and less systematical than that of Lebor
na Huidre, the alterations are more numerous here.
It
has not been attempted to establish an absolute unity
the rigorous system of the infixed pronouns, for instance,
was already giving way when our text was noted down,
so that different forms may have co-existed.
All late
forms and spellings, on the other hand, are replaced by
older ones, whenever the text supports them.
Thus for
ea in stem-syllables e is written, for e, e, ai only e.
In
unaccented syllables ea is replaced by a, in dative forms u
and ill have been introduced. The spirants d and g have
been distinguished, for postvocalic occlusive d, g the
spelling t, c is used.
The initial lenition of p, c, t is always
marked.
Final unlenited consonants are not written
double (except in ass away '). For bddar, bai, dar, a (' in '),
itir, chuici, etc., of the MS. the forms hdtar, boi, tar, i, etir,
cuici, etc., have been adopted.
All more important
alterations are indicated in the notes.
As to the retorics, in 5-6, 8-9, the MS. text is both
obscure and corrupt.
It would be useless to reprint it
unchanged.
Therefore it has been attempted to provide

The present edition is based on the oldest MS. text of


Version III (with the exception of the fragment in U),
namely R. Ir. Ac. D. 4.2 (S=Stowe), a vellmn MS. dating
probably from the fourteenth century. ^
As this MS.
text has never yet been published, all its readings are given
in the notes, even the slightest deviations from it are
accounted for. Thus the exact text of S, both in wording
and spelling, is made accessible to students by the present
edition. However, S is not without mistakes, and readings
had to be adopted from Lebor na Huidre (U), from Brit.
Mus. Harl. 5280 (H), and even from the representative
of Version I, Rawl. B. 512 (R), in order to provide an
intelligible text.
Although an exact reconstruction of an
earlier form of the story seems an impossibility, an attempt
it more or less is, of course, fulty justified.
Apart from the complete variants from S, the notes
provide a number of variants from the remaining MSS.,
but only as evidence for the readings adopted in our text.
In two cases still other MSS. have been compared, namely
for 30 and 79, as in these two paragraphs texts are found
incorporated in Tochmarc Emire, which are also known
separately.
For 30, Echtra Machae, the Book of Leinster

to approach

{2oa46 sqq.) affords a close variant (L), and for 79, the
Verba Scthaige, we have a number of MSS. where this
obscure retoric is transmitted independently, though in a
shorter form, and one of these, Rawlinson B. 512,- has also
been used for the establishment of our readings (V).
Morphologically the text of Tochmarc Emire can be
normalized only to a certain extent.
As it consists of
older and later parts, Old- and Middle-Irish forms must
be allowed to stand side by side. A separate study would
be required to distinguish the later accretions from the
original stock.
And even where the language is clearly
Old-Irish, it remains impossible to fix the exact stage.
The earliest portions doubtless reflect the language of
the eighth century, but of the surviving versions the
oldest does not go back beyond the tenth or the eleventh

AIDED CON CULAINN.


The story of C Chulainn's death is
names Brislech Mr Maige Muirthemne

also

known by

(1-41) and
It has come

the

Derg-

down
Ruathar Conaill Chernaig (42-58).
to us in two versions, an earher and a later one (A and B).^
Of Version A only fragments survive. The Book of
Leinster

(fo.

beginning

is

Iiga-i23b) contains a part of it, but the


and the portion preserved consists largely

lost

which an interpretation cannot


yet be attempted. ^ Our only other authority for Version A
is a number of short extracts or quotations from the
original text, found in a Trinity College MS. (H. 3. 18,
p. 601-603), which, however, only to a very limited extent
cover the part lost in LL.^ Owing to the fragmentary
state of the transmitted text no definite suggestions can
be made as to its origin and growth.
The oldest
nucleus is dated by Pokorny before the middle of the
eighth century.*
Version B is by many centuries later than Version A.
of rhetorical passages, of

It is

Early Modern Irish and dates, at

its

very best, from

the fifteenth century. There are no infixed pronouns, no


forms for the accusative different from the nominative,
the verbal system is on the whole that of the present-day
language, although in a few forms the distinction between
the absolute and the dependent forms is still made where
it has been lost in our days (i sg. fut., 3 sg. pret.).
From
the outset the prose text of this version was interspersed
with a number of poems, in accordance with the lyrical
character the story adopted in Version B, which strangely
contrasts with the Old-Irish epical strain of Version A.
Besides, the two versions differ also from one another in
the prose narrative, so that Version B is of little avail
for the reconstruction of the lost parts of Version A.
See on this Thurneysen, Die irische Helden- mid Konigssage,
547 sqq.
Edited partially by Wh. Stokes, Rev. celt. 3, 175 sqq.

Of Version B we have many MS. texts. The oldest of


these (Nat. Lib. of Scotland, Gaelic MS. nr. XLV, belonging
to the Highland Society of London), is a vellum MS. and can
be dated in the sixteenth century. It is itself a copy,
and a comparison with the later MSS. shows that it cannot
be taken as too faithful a representative of the archetype.
In this MS., for instance, all poems have been omitted, with
the exception of one t(jwards the end (52).
Besides,
both the beginning and the end of the story are lost, and
the first and last leaves are only partly legible.
large number of paper MSS., dating from the seventeenth to the nineteenth century, contain the same
version, though in a modernized spelling.^ These MSS.
have not yet been sufficiently scrutinized and their relation
is still unknown.
In most of them a large number of poems
have been preserved, although the same poem is not
always found at the same place. As to the prose, there are
some differences, but the trend of the narrative is identical

in

all.

The present

edition is based upon the oldest MS. representing Version B, Nat. Lib. Sc, Gael. MS. XLV, here
quoted as E (^Edinburgh). Very little has been altered
this seemed the better method
in the readings of this MS.
in dealing with this Early Modern Irish text, even if some
In fact, our
inconsistencies had to be allowed to stand.
text of Aided Con Culainn is far less normahzed than that
of the preceding stories.
Only where portions from the
Tain were incorporated (see 32-35), a number of earlier
and better readings have been introduced. x\part from
this, only a few unhistorical spellings have been corrected,
and in some cases, where E is clearly corrupt, readings
have been adopted from one of the paper MSS. (K). All
deviations from E are accounted for in the notes.
Where E is illegible, the text has been supplied from the
paper MS. that is nearest to E in the wording the same
;

Some

of these are enumerated by d'Arbois de Jubainville,


Essai d'un catalogue, p. 15 sq., 47 sqq., 100 sq. (though sometimes
confused with the portion of the Tain also called Brislech Mr).

K is practically identical with that of E. It has


not been copied from E, but goes back to the same original.
In a number of cases it even preserves the better readings,
as will be seen from the present edition, where K has been
used to emend the corruptions in E. Besides, K contains
a large number of poems. However, as E provides nothing
but the mere prose-text, the poems have also been omitted
from the portions supplied from K. These poems, in fact,
require a separate study for themselves.
In the passages taken from K the text of that MS. was
left exactly as it is, only a few obvious emendations being
suggested in the notes.
It seemed altogether useless,
and in many cases very risky indeed, to restore older
spellings in the text of this eighteenth century MS.
