The Metrical Dindshenchas (Author: [unknown])
- Daire Derg, who made red rain,
king of Nas strong in sanctity, won to wife,
after feats of prowess and force,
Maistiu daughter of Oengus.
- 5] Griss of the binding spell came
from Boand, famed for beauty of women,
(a devil's dam was she, without fair dealing)
to exact a demand from Maistiu.
- Maistiu gained not what she sought
10] for Griss of tuneful Leth Cuinn;
the wife of the tall youth from the plain
gained not the lump of gold she demanded.
