Buile Suibhne (Author: [unknown])
- Cliff of Farannan, abode of saints,
with many fair hazels and nuts,
swift cold water
rushing down its side.
- Many green ivy-trees are there
and mast such as is prized,
and fair, heavy-topped apple-trees
bending their branches.
- Many badgers going under its shelter
and fleet hares too,
and ... brows of seals
coming hither from the main.
- I am Suibhne son of upright Colman,
many a frosty night have I been feeble;
Ronan of Druim Gess has outraged me,
I sleep 'neath a tree at yonder waterfall.
