The Metrical Dindshenchas (Author: [unknown])

poem 9

Lagin II

  1. Labraid the Exile, (full his number)
    by whom Cobthach was slain at Dindrig,
    came with a lance-armed host over the sea-water;
    from them Lagin was named.
  2. 5] Tuaim Tenba was the name aforetime
    of the hill where the slaughter was done;
    Dindrig is its name from that time forth,
    since the slaying of the chieftains.
  3. Two and twenty hundreds of the Gall
    came oversea having with them broad lances;
    10] from the lances that were carried there–
    thence the men of Lagin get their name.
