The second one is the tale AIDED CHON ROI. There are two versions which the
question might be refering to: (a) the version which has been edited and
translated by R.I. Best in Eriu 2 (1905), 20-31 or (b) Keating's HISTORY OF
IRELAND, Vol II, Irish Texts Society Vol. VIII (1908), ed. R.S. Dinneen,
(There is also a prose dindshenchas version of the tale: FINDGLAIS: edited
and translated by Wh. Stokes, "The Rennes Dindshenchas", Revue Celtique 15,
(1894), 448-450 and O'Grady, SILVA GADELICA I, 482 ff.)
A lot of the material is unfortunately outdated, and I am presently
preparing a new edition of the complete Cu Roi-material.
