Just a further note on editions of poems from MS Laud 615.

E.G. Quin has an edition and translation of the poem 'Ochtfhoclach
Choluim Cille' at Celtica xiv (1981) 125-53. This is the poem that was
published by Kuno Meyer in his 'Mitteilungen aus irischen Handschriften'
in ZCP vii 198-217. Quin's edition takes advantage of a second MS copy
in the Book of Lecan, which Meyer drew attention to in ZCP x 37-41.

Quin dates the poem to the Middle Irish period, but can't be more
precise than somewhere in the eleventh or twelfth centuries.
