    Tuath-Luimnigh about the noble Sionainn,
    Two chiefs are over it on one side.
    O'Cadhla and O'Maille the swift,
    Beautiful ravens of the two inbhers.

    Ui-Aimrit, land of hospitality,
    Is hereditary to the sept of the O'Duibhidhirs;
    Their acquisition is far over Cliach;
    They are a branch in every ford.

    O'Cedfadha, of the pure heart,
    Is over the cantred of the Caladh;
    The sept of Cluain, chosen by Tal,
    The beautiful plain of O'Cedfadha.

    John O'Donovan (trans.), 1862
