I'm snowed in too and trying to catch up with the list.
DIL C 446.49 in the entry for 'con-icc' says --
"With accusative 'has power over, controls, is master of..."
Would 'sáraigid ar' ("is better than, gets the better of; persuades, prevails
upon" ) work here?
Or maybe a verbal noun construction, like
'ní coimnacuir a múrtho do sárugud'
See DIL C 447.28
