This is the end of the tale in LL. BB and Lec conclude with a long poem
by Cináed (perhaps, again, Cináed úa hArtacáin d. 987). The metre
appears to be the rannaigecht metre known as dechnad mór :
8(2)6(2)8(2)6(2). The opening verses are really quite difficult.
Personally, I would like to take a crack at it, but I am mindful that
the previous verses weren't all that popular, and that it might be time
to take our cue from LL and draw a curtain here. Besides, it is probably
time to get back to something a little older. Any thoughts?
