poem/story 31


  1. Victorious Boirche, the man of might, son of Ross Ruad, well-attended king, the staunch loud-voiced herdsman, used to call the horned kine.
  2. From harsh Inber Colptha to Dun Sobairche north-eastward they came at his call, seeking him from every quarter.
  3. In the spot where he met his dappled kine, for fear of wolf-packs and worryings, their master and great guardian would sleep with them nightly.
