poem 25

Belach Conglais

  1. I have heard of a chase, with series of exploits
    free from oblivion and obscurity;
    he it was that was slain, the hunter Glass,
    grandson of the brigand Dond Des.
  2. 5] Alas for the venture they went on there,
    the pack of Conaire of Cualu!
    manfully they fought their fights,
    the enchanted swine of wizardry.
  3. A sorry triumph by which fell the son of Dond Des,
    10] leaving no prosperous seed among chieftains;
    the wild boars carried him mangled
    to Bri Leith — he uttered no boast.
  4. The heroes of that hunt were in this shape —
    they were the red swine of Dreibrend:
    15] they died in this combat without victory
    after this encounter, as I have heard.
