    O'Grada took all
    The bountiful Cinel Dunghaile,
    His yellow-hilted polished swords,
    Weapons that slaughter meetings.

    Royal dynast of fine incursions
    Is Mac Conmara of Magh-Adhair,
    The territories of wealth are his country;
    Is over the Cantred of Ui-gCaisin.

    The host of the O'Dobharchons, pleasant company,
    Are the Muintir-Lideadha I mention,
    These are the Clanns of Sinnell,
    Ready are they with the nobles.

    John O'Donovan (trans.), 1862
