At another time Maenach son of Fingen, king of Cashel, seized the captive whose name was Erloman. The captive's mother came to Féchín to ask the ransom of her son; for it was Féchín's continual habit to ransom captives. Féchín gave her a necklace of gold (wherewith) to ransom her son. When the king beheld the necklace he uttered the stave:
- Ni coe comoil na cuillte
Since thou hast brought refined gift-gold.
To Féchín out of the glens,
Take his captive and his necklace.
