R3 is contained in two mss., B and M; and an important fragment of a third, H, is extant.

B, The Book of Ballymote (R.I.A. Library, 23 P 12, folios 8-34).

M is the second text in The Book of Lecan, occupying folios 264-312.

H is a fragment of five folios, 13' 5 X 9- 6 ins., with two columns on each page, and 56 lines of writing in the column. It is bound into a volume of miscellaneous fragments (H.2.15, no. 1, in T.C.D., Gwynn's Catalogue, 1316).



For now, I have been unable to find Vol. II of the Lebor Gabala Erenn, so I rely on John D. Mclaughlin for some parts of the text as established here.
