Hi Thurston, thanks for this info. Was wondering, could you perhaps put more words around this for me? What is ATDM please? and who claims what? when?
In ATDM it is claimed this formula was used
i) when God drove the rebel angels from heaven
ii) when the TDD took over Ireland from the Fir Bolg
iii) when the Gaels took over Ireland from the TDD
in this story it is then used by Oengus to seize the Bruig
I would note that the author probably models it on a formula used by Lug when he is making a circuit of the TDD before their battle with the fomoire:
Incomairsid fri cech naie, go comair ogma sachu go comair nem & talom, go comair grioan & esqu. Drem
niadh mo drem-sie duib
Does this earlier usage throw any light on it?
