This chapter argues that solid evidence of Irish influence on Welsh literature starts with the ninth‐century ‘brain drain’ of Irish scholars. The discussion covers the Cambridge Juvencus manuscript, Dubthach and Merfyn Frych, the Historia Brittonum, Cormac's Glossary, glosses and marginalia, the Pangur Bán poem, Cædmon's Hymn, the Twrch Trwyth and Ychen Bannog legends, and the May Day poem in the Black Book of Carmarthen and the Elegy on Cú Roí in the Book of Taliesin.

Keywords:   Cambridge Juvencus, Dubthach, Merfyn Frych, Historia Brittonum, Cormac's Glossary, Pangur Bán, Cædmon's Hymn, Twrch Trwyth, Ychen Bannog, Black Book of Carmarthen, Cú Roí, Book of Taliesin
