I see you've capitalized "Íath" etc.  I don't have the
complete text to look (that volume of ZCP has gone missing
from the library), but I gather that the angel has begun
a catalog of the fortunes of various ecclesiastical sites.
Does Meyer, in footnotes or otherwise, specifically identify
the geographical items and their identity?  The "lige leth"
and "ligelethf*olma" were giving me fits, since I was trying
to make sense of them as common nouns!  Caithfidh mé admháil
gur ghlac mé col leis an abairt thuas!!
