The first word here looks like a verb, and I would guess it is a form of 'fo-ceird...puts,
Maybe '-rolu' could be a variant of the perfect 3rd singular 'ro-lá' (he has thrown) or
the subjunctive present 2d or 3rd singular 'ro-lá'.
The passive forms are different; Dúil Bélrai has '-ralad' for passive 3rd singular.
But the 'nr' combination looks weird.
'r' doesnt get nasalized, as far as I know. I have seen 'coro' with forms of 'fo-ceird' but not
'conro'. There are a handful of verbs that have the 'conr' combination, like 'con-ricc' and
'con-rig' but I could not find one with an 'L'. Liz
