Well then, says Cobthach, know ye who is the most hospitable (man) in Erin? We know, says Craiphtine (the Harper), it is Labraid Loingsech, son of Ailill. I went to him in spring, and he killed his only ox for me. Says Ferchertne the Poet: Labraid is the most hospitable man we know. I went to him in winter, and he killed his only cow for me, and he possessed nothing but her.
