I have no idea what the Old Irish is (I'm mostly on this list as a constant
reminder to myself that one day I will learn!) but one phrase that has
stuck with me, from _The Wasting Sickness of Cu/ Chulainn_, "Many gentle
words have loved you." Cu/'s wife Emer says this to him when he is on his
sickbed. I would love to know the OI for it.
