poem 29

Sliab Mairge I

  1. Fierce as to prowess of spears was the lady,
    daughter of Rotmu son of Tacca,
    though she went the way of mortality
    because of the death of Etar and Bethe.
  2. 5] In Sliab Mairge she died,
    the lady Marg, because of the death of Bethe,
    on this mountain with no seemly fertility12,
    so that from her it is named.
  3. In the tale which is told here,
    10] according as every calamity is related,
    Marg of the bold deed died;
    to this lady it was a cruel trouble.
