poem 14

Moin Gai Glais

  1. Culdub, son of Dian, at Samain tide,
    went afar, the famous fighter,
    to demand duel man to man
    with joyous generous Fidrad.
  2. 5] Thereby fell Fidrad
    by encounter with doughty foes:
    the death of keen Fidrad in his fury, came
    by the hand of the red-knived son of Dian.
  3. Gai Glas, grandson of Lug of the graves,
    10] was a mass, a bulwark against enmity:
    he bore a riveted spear against shields,
    which Aith, the noble smith, forged.
  4. 'Tis he was champion of generous Fiachu,
    the grandson of Lug Liamna, bold and keen:
    15] he was the warrior who prayed to go without hire;
    by his hand fell Culdub.
