Cóir Connacht ar chath Laighean
It is an address to Aedh Ó Conchobair, King of Connacht (d. 1309 and is thought to be "the earliest extant bardic poem containing an 'arming the hero' sequence with reference to the new Norman style of arms.'[according to whom?]
It is of a piece with An sluagh sidhe so i nEamhuin?, composed nearly four hundred years later.
