From p. 123: "We can only assume the presence in Uisneach of a large Dog, for the osteological differences between a large Dog and a Wolf are so slight that only complete skulls would enable us to make an accurate determination. Quite a number of people are endeavouring to find out what the ancestors of the modern Irish Wolf­dog were like. If, as I think, these wolf-like remains from Uisneach were those of a Wolf-dog, a whole skeleton of such a creature or even a skull would be an invaluable treasure to the breeders of Wolf-hounds, and to a great many other' people as well."
