And what is this in line 3?
Fedhil fadlaich, olc do anmain
"Curled and hedgy, 'tis bad for the timid"
Now where does O'Looney get that from? Perhaps he is amending the last
word to 'uamain' (< omun). But what is he making of 'Fedhil fadlaich'?
(I toyed with the idea that he was treating the second word as
'failgech', but that would be 'curled', not 'hedgy'.)
The best I can manage is:
fethal athlŠich, olc do anmain
'[as] the ornament of a cleric, tis bad for [his] soul'
(See DIL F 104.52 for the spelling 'fedil'.)
