poem 20

Roiriu in Ui Muiredaig

  1. There is in truth a hiding-place above ground,
    where lies a generous hero with his wedded wife;
    the two Roirius, beautiful and slender,
    in the red Mound of Roiriu.
  2. 5] Roiriu was son of stout Senan,
    son of Setna and son of Branan;
    he was the generous hero whose is the grave
    whose royal sepulchre was Roiriu from of yore.
  3. There famous Roiriu was buried,
    10] daughter of Ronan of kingly temper,
    their loss was early and sudden;
    the hiding-place where they lie was never found.
