As with Volume 1 of the Series, the story of the martial career of 'Flat-nailed Conghal' belongs to the romantic cycle of Irish story-telling. However, like 'the Pursuit of Gruaidh Grian-Sholus' (vol. 24 below), it features characters belonging to the heroic cycle of Ulster tales. After completing warrior deeds in Norway, England (where King Arthur was involved), and Rathlin, Conghal attained the kingship of Ireland . The ideals of heroism, physical endurance, and equity are extolled in the tale. This volume, prepared for the Society by Patrick M MacSweeney, represents the only edition of the text.
