The Metrical Dindshenchas (Author: [unknown])
- I have heard of a chase, with series of exploits
free from oblivion and obscurity;
he it was that was slain, the hunter Glass,
grandson of the brigand Dond Des.
- 5] Alas for the venture they went on there,
the pack of Conaire of Cualu!
manfully they fought their fights,
the enchanted swine of wizardry.
- A sorry triumph by which fell the son of Dond Des,
10] leaving no prosperous seed among chieftains;
the wild boars carried him mangled
to Bri Leith he uttered no boast.
- The heroes of that hunt were in this shape
they were the red swine of Dreibrend:
15] they died in this combat without victory
after this encounter, as I have heard.
