There are several different "sets of three" in the Metrical Dindshenchas of Temair.
1. Westward from the Grave of this dwarf are Mael, Bloc, and Bluicne—foolish their wisdom! over them are the three stones that the Prince of great Macha flung.
2. The secret Rampart of the three Whispers is between the Hall and the Heroes' Well; the Stone of the Warriors is east of the road, over against the Rath of the Synod.
3. The Caprach of Cormac is in the Rath of the Kings; eastward from the Rath of the Kings (that is the truth of it) is the Well of the Numbering of the Clans, which is called by the three names:
Liaig Dail Duib Duirb, Tuath Linde, and Tipra Bo Finne, three names to designate it, to make known the well of Temair.
Add to the above the three days before and after Samain plus the fact the feast was held every third year and was attended by the three orders of Royalty, Druids and People. Perhaps it is the accumulation of sets of three that is meant by Tara of the Three.
