The Metrical Dindshenchas (Author: [unknown])
- Labraid the Exile, (full his number)
by whom Cobthach was slain at Dindrig,
came with a lance-armed host over the sea-water;
from them Lagin was named.
- 5] Tuaim Tenba was the name aforetime
of the hill where the slaughter was done;
Dindrig is its name from that time forth,
since the slaying of the chieftains.
- Two and twenty hundreds of the Gall
came oversea having with them broad lances;
10] from the lances that were carried there
thence the men of Lagin get their name.
