Poems in the Codex S. Pauli.

V.


1. Aed oll fri andud[1] nane · Aed fonn fri fuilted[2] féle
  in deil delgnaide[3] as choemem · di dindgnaib Roerenn[4] rede.
2. In chlí comras cond credail · ollmas fu thocaid tugaib
  du farclu sech cach ndíne · di Moisten míne mrugaib.
3. Mac Diarmata dil damsa · cid iarfachta ni insa
  a molad maissiu máenib · lúaidfidir láedib limmsa[5].
4. Inmain nainm nítat nuabla · Aeda nad airdlig dígna
  in cruth glan clú nad chlithe · dian duthoig[6] Liphe lígda.
5. Aue Muiredaich centhain[7] · all togu fri orddain úallann
  aue ni fríth nach ammail[8] · na ríg di chlandaib Cualann.
6. Ind flaith issed a orbbae · each maith do dé no arddae[9]
  in gas fine cen dídail · di rígaib massaib Marggae.
7. Is bun cruinn mair miad soerda · fri báig is búnad prímda
  is gasne arggait arddbrig · di chlaind chéit rig ceit rignæ.
8. Oc cormaim gaibtir dúana · drengaitir dreppa[10] dáena[11]
  arbeittet bairtni bindi · tri laith linni ainm nAeda.

Aed oll   


1. Aed great at kindling of brilliance. Aed joyous at increase of hospitality:
  the … rod that is dearest of the heights (chieftains) of level Roeriu.
2. The mighty balk … great (and) good under roofs of fortune,
  to be chosen beyond any generation of the marches of smooth Moistiu.
3. Son of Diarmait dear to me, though it be to be asked, it is easy,
  his praise is more beautiful than treasures, it will be sung in lays by me.
4. Beloved the name—they are no new fames—of Aed who deserves not reproach:
  the pure form—renown that is not hidden—to whom lovely Liffey belongs.
5. Descendant of Muredach at every time, rock of choice for noble dignity:
  a descendant—no evil person was found, of the kings of the clans of Cualu.
6. The lordship, this is his heritage, every good to him of gods or ungods:
  the scion of a family without reproach[12], of the handsome kings of Marg.
7. He is the bole of a great tree—noble dignity: for battle he is a pre-eminent stock:
  he is the sapling of silver—high worth—of the children of a hundred kings, of a hundred queens.
8. At ale poems are chanted: fine (genealogical) ladders are climbed:
  melodious bardisms modulate through pools of liquor the name of Aed.
