An bhfuil seanchas ag e/inne ar an mbo/ seo, a ndu/irt
Peig Sayers ina taobh: "Bhi/ se/ chomh righin leis an
seithe a bhi/ ar an bhFionnbhle/ineach fado/."
Does anyone have any lore about this cow, about whom
Peig Sayers said: "It was as tough as the hide which
the Fionnbhle/ineach [white-loined one] once wore."
I don't know how far back in the tradition this cow
goes. The name is clearly similar to that of the
bull Finnbennach (white-horned), the cause of the
Ta/in. I wonder if the Fionnbhle/ineach has some
resonance with the Glas Goibnenn, Cian's magical
cow, which was also associated in folk tradition
with St. Brigit?
