Abstract

We examine the structural relationships between TBF as presented by Leahy [Heroic Romances in Ireland (David Nutt, London, 1906)] and TBC from a social networks point of view and compare them with the seven smaller tales presented in Kinsella's text. We ¯nd that network structures in Kinsella's text both TBC itself and the remscela he selected are similar to those in TBF, and somewhat moreso the ¯rst part than the second.
