The Metrical Dindshenchas (Author: [unknown])

poem/story 40


  1. Shameful, I ween, is the origin of the legend of the Moor of mighty Nar: Nar caused his tribe to increase until he met his death at the hand of Etsine.
  2. Etsine, valiant warrior-woman, slew Nar the venomous poet: poet though he was, and venomous, that woman brought him to pale death.
  3. Two birds had the woman, whose names were Cel and Celetir: in revenge for them (it was ‘a white page for a blot’) Nar was brought to ruin and shame.
