This thesis examines early Irish ideas of sexual difference through five thematic studies of the construction of gender in Irish saga texts. Its readings analyze the representation of femininity, masculinity, sexuality, and corporeality in a range of sagas from the mythological and Ulster cycles. A brief introductory survey of historical and literary scholarship on women, gender, and sexuality in early medieval Ireland opens the thesis. The first chapter reads two foretales to the central text of the Ulster cycle, Tain Bo Cuailnge [The Cattle-Raid of Cooley], De Chophur in Da Muccida [On the Quarrel of the Two Swineherds] and Noinden Ulad [The Debility of the Ulstermen], for their representation of gender and corporeality; a preliminary discussion of gender in sagas classified as foretales contextualizes the analysis of the place of gendered bodies in originary saga narratives. The second chapter focuses on Irish literature's militant women, surveying female warriors in texts including the Law of Adomnan, a learned poem by Flann Mainistrech, and early Irish classical adaptations as context for a reading of the women warriors in Tochmarc Emire [The Wooing of Emer]. The third chapter examines the representation of bodies and sexuality in the mythological saga Cath Maige Tuired [The Battle of Mag Tuired], concentrating on the carnivalesque sequence that relates the sexual encounter between the Dagda and the daughter of the enemy leader, Indech; the discussion contrasts the sequence's subversive, scatological comedy with the conservative portrayal of gender and sexuality elsewhere in the narrative. The fourth chapter traces the differences of gender ideology between the two medieval versions of Tain Bo Cuailnge by analyzing their representation of masculinity, particularly in the Fer Diad episode. The final chapter reads the corporeal signification of the heroes of Scela Mucce Meic Datho [The Story of Mac Datho's Pig] through the concept of inscription in flesh, drawing on Old Irish legal texts and twentieth-century theorists to examine the function of mutilated male bodies in the saga's ironic, parodic discourse. The prominence of bodies in the texts considered suggests that early Irish saga privileges corporeality over gender as an index of power and difference.

Tain Bo Cuailnge "the driving-off of cows of Cooley," more usually rendered The Cattle Raid of Cooley or The Tain) is a legendary tale from early Irish literature, often considered an epic, although it is written primarily in prose rather than verse. It tells of a war against Ulster by the Connacht queen Medb and her husband Ailill, who intend to steal the stud bull Donn Cuailnge, opposed only by the teenage Ulster hero Cuchulainn. Traditionally set in the 1st century AD in an essentially pre-Christian heroic age, the Tain is the central text of a group of tales known as the Ulster Cycle. It survives in two main written versions or "recensions" in 12th century manuscripts, the first a compilation largely written in Old Irish, the second a more consistent work in Middle Irish.

ONCE of a time, that Ailill and Medb had spread their royal bed in Cruachan, the stronghold of Connacht, such was the pillow talk that befell betwixt them: Quoth Ailill: 'True is the saying, lady, 'She is a well off woman that is a rich man's wife.'' 'Aye, that she is, ' answered the wife; 'but wherefore opin'st thou so?' 'For this, ' Ailill replied, 'that thou art this day better off than the day that first I took thee.' Then answered Medb: 'As well off was I before I ever saw thee.' 'It was a wealth, forsooth, we never heard nor knew of, ' Ailill said; 'but a woman's wealth was all thou hadst, and foes from lands next thine were used to carry off the spoil and booty that they took from thee.' 'Not so was I, ' quoth Medb; 'the High King of Erin himself was my sire, Eocho Fedlech ('the Enduring') son of Finn, by name, who was son of Findoman, son of Finden, son of Findguin, son of Rogen Ruad ('the Red'), son of Rigen, son of Blathacht, son of Beothacht, son of Enna Agnech, son of Oengus Turbech.

The second play is a bonus taken from other John Dunne Cooley plays designed to be performed as a two handed drama. Consisting of two scenes, the first features Queen Maeve and her prophetess Fedelm (Cattle Raid) and the second is taken from The Curse of Macha (part two of the Cooley trilogy).

"The Tain", also known as "Tain Bo Cuailnge" or "The Cattle Raid of Cooley", is a heroic and legendary tale from early Irish literature. Earliest manuscripts of this epic story survive from the 12th century and versions of this ancient tale have been found in Old Irish, Middle Irish, and Modern Irish translations. "The Tain" is set in a pre-Christian age of heroes in Ireland, sometime around the first century, and is the central tale in the Ulster Cycle, one of the four great cycles of Irish mythology. It is the thrilling saga of the young hero Cuchulain and his single-handed defeat of the invading armies of Medb and Ailill, who have come to try and steal Donn Cuailnge, the Brown Bull of Cooley. It is also the tale of the rivalry and discord between King Ailill and his wife and competitor Queen Medb. It is the competition for greatness between husband and wife that inspires her relentless quest to steal the famed bull from Ulster. "The Tain" has everything that a reader may expect from legendary epic tales: impossible tasks, bloody battles, inspiring acts of heroism and strength, treachery, betrayal, love, and magic. Presented here is the translation of Joseph Dunn in an edition printed on premium acid-free paper.
