The Voyage of the Hui Corra (Author: Unknown)

section 69

‘Who are ye?’ says the gillie.

‘The community of Ailbe of Emly’ quoth he, ‘and we are the crew of Ailbe's second boat40; and we are alive here till Doomsday as God has permitted, singing requiems for every one who is dead on the sea. And get ye out of this land’, quoth he, ‘before the morning, for not here will be your resurrection. And unless ye depart(?) before morning it will be the worse for you, for it will be torment of mind and nature to you to sever from (this island) if ye see it in the day. So that it is better for you to go forth from it in the night.’

They fulfilled all things, even as he quoth to them.
