Thanks, David, for your comments on the poetry in 37 and 38. 7 Syllables each line. The 'a' of line 2 of 39 is elided; alternatively, the 'i' of 'is é' might be dropped. I see aicill at 'cét/brécc', 'ngorm/colg', 'Néill/réidh'. I don't see it at 'mbúar/úair' because one ending consonant is palatalized and one is not. I put alliteration into capitals. Liz >39.
