Dear people,

Thanks Gearóid, Marion, Dennis and Liz for all your contributions.  What we
have now is:

39. *Deic[h]neabor is fiche cét,*

**

*is é a f˙ior is ní brēcc dhamh,*

*do c[h]lannaibh Nēil na ndrech ngorm*

*do thuit le colg Taidg ‘sa treas.*



39. Ten people and hundred and twenty

it is true, and no lie

of dark-faced Clann Néill

fell by the Tadg’s sword in the fight


 40. *Brister an cath ar cloinn Nēill,*

*gabthar ann Maoil Rúanaidh réidh,*

*beirmit a mbroid is a mbūar*

*linn tar Eirne ūair da ēis.*

* *

40. Clann Néill is defeated

Smooth Maol Rúanaidh is taken there,

we carry their captives and their cattle

with us across cold Erne after that.



Now, just wait till you see the next bit.

Lenore
