The Life of St Féchín of Fore (Author: [unknown])

section 48

At another time Maenach son of Fingen, king of Cashel, seized the captive whose name was Erloman. The captive's mother came to Féchín to ask the ransom of her son; for it was Féchín's continual habit to ransom captives. Féchín gave her a necklace of gold (wherewith) to ransom her son. When the king beheld the necklace he uttered the stave:

    1. Ni coe comoil na cuillte
      Since thou hast brought refined gift-gold.
      To Féchín out of the glens,
      Take his captive and his necklace.
