[lomamain ???], he was an extraordinary warrior of the Ulaid, this Ferdomun. No-one of the foreigners escaped, only the druid Dub Diad came flying out of the battle, and
he did not stop (? ar·sissedar?) until Scotland, without boat, without barc, and a dead warrior clinging to one feet, because Congal had bound a fetter between every two of
his men, making battle, so that no-one of them would flee from the other.
