Roiriu in Ui Muiredaig
- There is in truth a hiding-place above ground,
where lies a generous hero with his wedded wife;
the two Roirius, beautiful and slender,
in the red Mound of Roiriu.
- 5] Roiriu was son of stout Senan,
son of Setna and son of Branan;
he was the generous hero whose is the grave
whose royal sepulchre was Roiriu from of yore.
- There famous Roiriu was buried,
10] daughter of Ronan of kingly temper,
their loss was early and sudden;
the hiding-place where they lie was never found.
