The Metrical Dindshenchas (Author: [unknown])
Moin Gai Glais
- Culdub, son of Dian, at Samain tide,
went afar, the famous fighter,
to demand duel man to man
with joyous generous Fidrad.
- 5] Thereby fell Fidrad
by encounter with doughty foes:
the death of keen Fidrad in his fury, came
by the hand of the red-knived son of Dian.
- Gai Glas, grandson of Lug of the graves,
10] was a mass, a bulwark against enmity:
he bore a riveted spear against shields,
which Aith, the noble smith, forged.
- 'Tis he was champion of generous Fiachu,
the grandson of Lug Liamna, bold and keen:
15] he was the warrior who prayed to go without hire;
by his hand fell Culdub.
