Cormac mac Cuillenáin and the jesters1

Cf. the Donnbo story in O'Donovan's…

Et do-rat duine tri h-ubla mora aidble do Corpmac et adubairt; “A crossana,” ar se, “da n-derntai airfitedh amarach dam, do-gebhtai na h-ubla sech in slogh uile,” ⁊ do-gabattar do laimh co n-dingnedis ge mad beo marbh iat. “Tabraidh mo lamh fa comhall-sin,” ar Corbmac, ⁊ do-naiscc orra amlaid-sin, ⁊ tuccadh in cath  p.9 arna marach ⁊ do-rochair Cormac ann. Et ar t-techt na h-aidhce da n-ionnsaighe adubairt Cerball: “Eirgidh nech uaibh,” ar se, “d' fis an armaigh ⁊ do fechain Corbmaic an comhaillfed-se a luighe.” ⁊ do-cuaidh in techtaire dia fis ⁊ mar do-bí ann at-connairc cinnu na c-crosan ic com-aentuccud cum a cele.

Is ann adubairt Gegan, an brathair ba h-amhra ⁊ ba h-aireghda dibh: “Druididh cuccainn ille,” ar se, “et an f-fedabair cuin do-gabhabair do laimh airfittedh do denam do mac Cuilennain et as mor an feidhm a dingbáil airfidigh do denam dó, ⁊ dá madh beo sinde, do-génmais a airpeitedh ⁊ do-cedaigh in Coimdhe dún a airfidedh-somh et sind marbh.” Et at-bert Gegan na roinn-si:

  1. Truaghan sin, a Rí na righ,
    a Rí firen fichtib sluaigh,
    is eolcaire na gach ceol
    ceol na c-cend in aidche ̇fuair.
  2. A chind Gégain, druid ille,

  9. Corbmac a Tulach na righ

    gach ni do-fuighill a bel,
    do-fuiling gach tren is grach truagh.

    maith do dluighe ralach ruadh,

  11. Camhair-so, coisccidh bhar c-ceol,
