The following overview is based mainly on T. K. Abbott • E. J. Gwynn, Catalogue of Irish MSS in TCD (1921).

» The first leaf (page?), unnumbered, was originally left blank. It now bears some Latin writing, a “prayer written in the secretary hand of the time of Henry VIII” (i.e. first half of the 16th century).

The list below has been collated from the table of contents (if available on this page)
Progress in this area is being made piecemeal. Full and partial tables of contents are available for a small number of manuscripts.
and incoming annotations concerning individual texts (again, if available).
Whenever catalogue entries about texts are annotated with information about particular manuscript witnesses, these manuscripts can be queried for the texts that are linked to them.
