I should’ve added this in the first post, a bit of context, the poem above is from Aidedh Ferghusa Maic Léti or the Death of Fergus Mac Leide, dating from the late 11th/early 12th century CE. It is also known as Imthechta Tuaithe Luachra 7 Aided Fergusa and forms part of the Cycle of Kings in the Ulster Cycle. An older version of the story of Fergus, 8th century, is Echtra Fergusa maic Léti. The manuscripts are held at Trinity College, Dublin, and in the British Library (Egerton and Harleian respectively).
