Ryan‘s article attempts to reconstruct the exact sequence of events leading up to, during, and immediately after, the Battle of Clontarf in 1014. Ryan also attempts to identify the historical individuals present at the battle. The article itself is a short monograph that relies on comparing the various sources on the battle. All the sources mentioned are Irish annals and chronicles, although brief mention is made on page 15 to the ''Saga of Burnt Njal'', as well as a reference on page 3 to the Annals of Loch Cé containing "rhetorical and romantic matter about visions, Christian and pagan“ which may indicate Norse influence. This article is rather old, but does provide an overview on a chapter of Irish history, which overlaps with the Icelandic Sagas.
