'The papers in this fine volume exemplify the range of questions modern scholarship can productively ask of the texts of the Ulster Cycle. They testify to the importance of this period of Ireland's legendary prehistory for many branches of senchas and to its potential for continuous reinterpretation and reuse in different cultural and political contexts ... A worthwhile and valuable successor to the proceedings of the previous Ulidia conferences and will leave its mark on future discussion on the Ulster Cycle of tales', Erich Poppe, Cambrian Medieval Celtic Studies (Summer 2018).


'The resulting proceedings, of which this is the fourth, dominate discussion in a field in which literary-critical monographs remain scarce. This is a very fitting and successful addition to the series, showcasing a wide range of productive approaches to the text ... Ulidia 4  is an excellent volume ... to anyone with a research interest in medieval Irish literature and mythology, it will be enduringly useful', Mark Williams, Folklore (2020).
