A scolóc reviews the varied high points
of a year's léigenn; sung to the tune of
"The Twelve Days of Christmas":

I n-dib mísaib déec,
rommúnus imbed dom:
dá apstal déec,
acht óen ba mraithem,
deich timnae rechta,
noí tonna mara,
ocht n-araid Loga,
secht ndoruis inte,
sé gabála Éirenn,
cóic aicmi oguim,
cethair cóicid Fáil,
trí maic drúise,
dá láech oc glíaid,
ocus súil millti isin chiunn mór.

Translation, explication, correction,
critique, confusion all welcome!
