    Since Lebor Gabála Érenn became the canon of Irish historiography shortly after its first appearance in the eleventh century (Carey 1993, 6), the doctrine that Amairgen, son of Míl of Spain, delivered the first judgment in Ireland has accordingly been accepted by medieval Irish literati. This doctrine has been summarised in (1) below, cited from the Book of Leinster copy of Lebor Gabála, while the same passage is found in copies representing all three of the so-called first, second and third redactions(Macalister 1942, 46, 68, 94).
