The Metrical Dindshenchas (Author: [unknown])
- Were I to find myself in the east on the plain where ye ride, ere departing I would relate the story of its women, I would not hide it.
- Findabair, daughter of Lugaid, died here in the hour of her distress, when she came hither from the west, commanding clouds of warriors.
- Lugaid Laigde, unerring marksman, came hither with Cormac, and the stainless stripling fell in the mighty battle of Crinna.
- The three Ferguses, with shoutings manifold, were hewn by the hand of Lugaid: Lugaid, that slew them at Rath Cró, was left all imbrued in gore.
- It was the death of her proud beloved father that brought the maiden eastward: of a truth, she never left him till the breath left her lips.
- 1After Findabair, her nursling died of grief for loss of his mistress: 'tis right to set his name in her lay: from him Bréch-mag is called.
- I was familiar there afterward with the plain ye ride about: 'tis right that I should find myself in the spot where stands her grave imperishable.
