'Mar a mharbh Cu-chullainn a mhac Connlaoch' [How Cu-chullainn killed his son Connlaoch]

Scope and Content

Tale 'Mar a mharbh Cu-chullainn a mhac Connlaoch' recorded at Port Charlotte, Islay in July 1860 from 'Padraig Buidhe' [whose real name was Peter Anderson, Coultorsay, Islay]. A note from 1866 discusses the reciter and the tale, and another note from 1872 states that the tale was intended for 'Mr. Campbell of Islay' [John Francis Campbell], but perhaps 'Mr. Murdoch' [John Murdoch] would like it in writing for the Gaelic Society of Inverness.


See National Library of Scotland Adv. MS 50.1.12 fo.130v for note about 'Padruig Buidhe' . See also NLS Adv. MS 50.1.12 fos.132-7 for the tale, probably transcribed from Coll-97/CW 462.
