I am inclined to leave this between cruces and not try to find solution at every price.

The problem here is that we need a past subjunctive (i.e. ·todsaitis), but "·tuititis" is imperfect. Is it possible that the imperfect has a modal force here? GOI says nothing
about it, and I can't remember to have come across it so far.

Should we include the emendation "...íarna [dáir tair] don Dunn..."? Note the collocation of "dairid" + "tair" above in 13.1:
> conda·rodart in Donn Cúailng[e] tair hi Cúailng[i].

I found a parallel for "nod·fil" in "Scéla Éogain 7 Cormaic 95":
Ma nod·fil fer di chlaind Airt i nhÉre, is hé in fer sin.
