Colum Cille, Comgall und Cainnech

 43b2Colum Cilli ⁊ Comhghall ⁊ Caindech dochūatar do thigh Crumthir Dathī ar āidhighecht īar caithimh a proinne don mhuinntir. Is ē gnāthughudh dobhīdh ag Crumthir, cemadh ūasal ant āidhi noroised a h-aithle a proinne chuige, nā tibred bīadh dō cu h-arabārach. Rohīadhudh int aracul forra-som īar sin ⁊ nī tugad proinn cu h-arnabhāruch dōibh ⁊ nīr ̇fētsat in tech d' fhāgbāil la daingne an īadhtha bái fair, ciamad āil dōib.

Tucad proinn dāibh cu moch arnamhāruch ⁊ ba h-áine ann do sunnraid. ⁊ is amlaid tucad proinn dōib ⁊ soiscēl Cruimthir fuirre dia furāil forusa, ar rȯfitir nobīath mōit forro ⁊ comad leasc leo a caithimh 'san āine. Adubairt Colum Cille nā caithfed bīadh 'san āine. Adubairt Comghall roba cōra caithium ar an soiscēl, ciarbhó áine ann. Adubairt Caindech robo cōra a chaithimh ⁊ doneth cāch a chrābud. Adubairt Colum Cille:

  1. C. C.
    Nocho loingiubh-sa cu moch
    isin āine dīdine,
    ūair is ē mu lā catha
    tar cenn flatha fīrinne.
Adubairt Comghall:
  1. C.
    Caithem sēre ar soiscēlu
    adhram Críst nā rub meabul,
    nā rub caithium 'nar n-ōenar
    tre cōir bæguil ar demhan.
 p.43 Adubairt Caindech:
  1. Ca.
    Mad dia teacmad cēle Dē,
    loinged, lūisseadh immale,
    intan bīas cāch araglan
    cach ac aragan dognē.

Giarbo leasc la Colum Cille, docaith becān don proinn. Docaith Comhghall tres mhaith don proinn. Moo rocaith Caindech inā cach fear díb.

Tāinic Cruimthir Dathī dia n-acallaim īar sin. Atconnairc a bhfuighle et adubairt re Comgall: “Uair as tusa rȯfurāil an proinn do chaithim, cu rabh būaidh crābuid at baile dogrēs ⁊ gach duine tinnscnas crābud acat, rath crābuid fair.” Adubairt re Colum Cille: “Or as tusa as lugha rochaith don proinn, cach duini troiscfeas let a tosach a crābuid, būaidh crābuid dōibh.” Adubairt re Caindech: “Ár is tusa is mō rochaith don proinn, sonus bīd ⁊ lenna at baile.”

Et dorōnsat a n-ænta ⁊ a cadach īarum.

Manuscript sources

  • Derbyshire, Chatsworth House, Book of Lismore, fo. 43a1–44b2. Fifteenth to sixteenth century; 200 folios; c. 37 by 255 mm; scribes Aonghus Ó Callanáin and at least two other anonymous scribes; origin probably the Franciscan Friary of Timoleague, Co Cork. The MS is acephalous (missing 42 folios) and is lacunose. A patron's book, written for Fínghin Mac Carthaigh Riabach (died 1505) and his wife Caitlín (died 1505), daughter of Thomas, Earl of Desmond. The codex was at Timoleague in June 1629 when it was used by Míchél Ó Cléirigh. It may have passed into the possession of the Earl of Cork in 1642 and then disappears from view. Discovered in Lismore Castle in 1814 in the course of building works, it was transferred from Lismore to Chatsworth in 1930. Facsimile edition by R. A. S.
