  • folio 21r
  • folio 22r
  • folio 23v
  • folio 26v (a bard)
  • folio 27v
  • folio 28r
  • folio 28v (a kingship ritual so one assumes the men eating the horseflesh
    are courtiers)
  • folio 29r (footed trews)
  • folio 30r

So these are images of the Irish as reported by Gerald of Wales. He wasn’t very complimentary to the Irish, but the clothing seems quite plausible. — K.
