The great heat of the noon day then overtook them, and Finn said that he would stay at the foot of the quicken tree till that heat should be past: “for I know that Diar­muid is in the top of the tree.” Therefore Rath na h-Amrann (“Rath of the Marvel") is the name of the place that is on the top of the mountain from that time to this. Then Finn spoke and what he said was: “O Oisin, loose the three chiefs for me.” “This it is,” said Diarmuid; “the daughter of the king of Erin has fled secretly with me from her father and from Finn, and it is not of my will that she has come with me.” “Here are Finn mac Cumaill, the son of Aft, the son of Trenmor O’Baoiscne, and four hundred hirelings with him; and we bear thee no love, and if thou shouldst come out to us we would cleave thy bones asunder.” Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) More Diarmuid greeted them, and the very life of Grainne all but fled out through her mouth with joy at meeting Diarmuid. “What counsel dost thou give me, O Cailte?” said Diarmuid.

Then Grainne felt sure of the death of Diarmuid, and she uttered a long exceedingly piteous cry, so that it was heard in the distant parts of the stronghold; and her women and the rest of her people came to her, and asked her what had thrown her into that excessive grief. “A friend and a dear comrade of thine is here, that is, Finn the son of Cuadan mac Murchada, the royal chief of the fian of Munster, and the Munster fian together with him; and we are of one land and one country with thee, O Diarmuid, and we will give our bodies and our lives for thee and for thy sake.” He himself went into the next wood to him, and plucked in it a straight long rod of a quicken tree; and he put a hair and a hook upon the rod, and put a holly berry upon the hook, and went and stood over the stream, and caught a fish that cast. Grainne said, Diarmuid rose and told Orainne that their enemies were near them; and he told her the tale of the strangers from beginning to end, how three fifties of their people had fallen three days one after the other by his feats, and how fifteen hundred of their host had fallen on the fourth day by the fury of his hand, and how he had bound the three chiefs on the fifth day. Angus of the Brug then said that he would take Grainne with him. And thou wast cheerful, joyous, and of good courage before me that night, O Finn,” said Diarmuid; “and had it been that night that I asked thee for a drink, thou wouldst have given it to me, and thou wouldst not have done so more justly that night than now.” NOTES Foul is the treachery that thou didst show towards Diarmuid, though at peace with turn, with Cormac also would have given thee his other daughter, in order that thou mightest bear Diarmuid no enmity nor malice. Then the steward laid me under the fearful perilous taboos of Drum Druidecta that I should show him who had slain his son. Then Diarmuid hove a piteous sigh of anguish when be saw that. After that Diarmuid arose and stood, and stretched forth his active warrior hand over his broad weapons, and took leave and farewell of Oisin and of the chiefs of the fian; and not bigger is a smooth-crimson whortleberry than was each tear that Diarmuid shed from his eyes at parting with his people. “I desire to learn it of thee,” said Grainne.

Let Diarmuid of the bright weapons be lifted by you; After that lay Angus asked the household of Gramnne wherefore they were come to that spot. “Who is she?” said Finn. Then Diarmuid rose and stood upon a high bough of the tree, and rose up with an airy bound, light, bird-like, by the shafts of his 8pears, so that he got the breadth of his two soles of the grass-green earth, and he passed out far beyond Finn and the fian of Erin. Now on the last day of the year Diarmuid was in Rath Grainne asleep; and Diarmuid heard the voice of a hound in his sleep in the night, and that caused Diarmuid to start out of his sleep, so that Grainne caught him and threw her two arms about him, and asked him what he had seen. ' DIARMUID AND GRAINNE' Third Programme, 22 January 1956 15.00. Cormac spoke, and what he said was: “That I will tell thee,” said Finn. “I swear upon my arms,” said Oscar, “that if thou bring not the water speedily, O Finn, there shall not leave this hill but either thou or I.” Finn returned to the well the third time because of that speech which Oscar had made to him, and brought the water to Diarmuid, and as be came up the life parted from the body of Diarmuid. Surveyors: Paul Tierney, Chris Emblow He rose with an airy light bound over Diarmuid, and would fain have seized Grainne, but Diarmuid caught his two hind legs, and struck a blow of his carcass against the nearest rock, so that he let out his brains through the openings of his head and of his ears. “That shall profit thee nothing, O Oisin,” said Finn, “and well I knew the three shouts that Cailte’s servant gave, that it was ye that sent them as a warning to Diarmuid; and that it was ye that sent my own hound, that is, Bran, with another warning to him: but it shall profit you nothing to have sent him any of those warnings; for he shall not leave Doire Da Both until he give me compensation for everything that be hath done to me, and for every slight that he hath put on me.” Finn said that he would, in whatever way Diar­muid would make peace. Afterwards came Finn-cosach and Tren-cosach to combat with him, one after the other; and he bound them with the same binding, and said that he would take their heads from them, were it not that he had rather leave them in those bonds to increase their torments: “for none can loosen you,” said he; and he left them there weary and in heavy grief. It lies about halfway between the village of Carrowkeel and Carndonagh. Posted by. O thou of the white teeth, thou bright and fair one; “I swear,” said Grainne, “that I will not taste a single berry of them but the berry that thy hand shall pluck, O Diarmuid.” Thereupon Diarmuid rose and stood, and plucked the berries for Grainne and for the children of Morna, so that they ate their fill of them. The handmaid took the goblet to Cairbre, and he was not well able to give it to him that was next to him, before a stupor of sleep and of deep slumber fell upon him too, and each one that took the goblet, one after another, fell into a stupor of sleep and of deep slumber. As for Finn, I will tell his tidings clearly. ), Subsite: Circalittoral rock with Caryophyllia smithii. “We will both of us give them battle, and destroy them, and rend their flesh, and not suffer a servant to escape alive of them, but we will slay them all,” said Oscar.

Then they told him to take away his sword, saying that already too many of their people had fallen by him; and they asked him whether he had gotten any word of the tidings of Diarmuid O’Duibne. Er führt vorbei an herrlichen Aussichtspunkten und es gibt schöne Wildblumen. Oisin spoke, and what he said was: “I tell thee to retain that youth,” said Grainne, “for thou canst not always remain without followers.” Then they made bonds of compact and agreement one with the other, and journeyed forth westward until they reached the Carrthach; and when they had reached the stream, Muadan asked Diarmuid and Grainne to go upon his back so that he might bear them across over the stream. This was revealed to the hag, and she caused herself to fly by magic upon the leaf of a water lily, having a hole in the middle of it, in the fashion of the quern-stone of a mill, so that she rose with the blast of the pure- cold wind and came over Diarmuid, and began to aim at and strike him through the hole with deadly darts, so that she wrought the hero great hurt in the midst of his weapons and armor, and that he was unable to escape, so greatly was be oppressed; and every evil that had ever come upon him was little compared to that evil. The giant, having heard that, rose up and stood, and put his club over his shoulder, and dealt Diarmuid three mighty strokes, so that he wrought him some little hurt in spite of the shelter of his shield. But Diarmuid was loyal to Fionn. “Take this goblet to Cairbre Liffecair and tell him to drink a draught out of it, and give the goblet to those sons of kings by him.” “Howbeit, it is not easy for you to meddle with them by any means; for that Searban Lochlannach has made a wilderness of the districts around him, so that Finn and the fian dare not chase or hunt there for the dread of that terrible one.” “Who is that warrior at the shoulder of Goll?” said Grainne. Hasten ye and depart. He has but one eye only in the fair middle of his black forehead, and there is a thick collar of iron round that giant’s body, and he is fated not to die until there be struck upon him three strokes of the iron club that he has. Now Donnchad the son of Diarmuid O’Duibne was the eldest son of them, and to him the other sons were subject; that is, Eochaid, Connla, Selbsercach, and Ollann the long-bearded, the son of Diarmuid, that is, the son of the daughter of the king of Leinster; and Grainne bore greater love and affection to none of her own children than to Ollann. When Angus beard those spells laid upon thee, he conjured thee never to hunt a swine; and that wild boar is the wild boar of Benn Gulban, and it is not meet for thee to await him upon this hill.” Then each gave the other a violent mighty twist; but Diarmuid hove Dub-cosach upon his shoulder, and hurled his body to the earth, and bound him firm and fast upon the spot. “It is a great token of jealousy in thee, O Finn,” said Oisin, “to think that Diarmuid would stay upon the plain of Maenmag, seeing that there is there no stronghold but Doire Da Both, and thou too awaiting him.” Nevertheless Finn will shortly get tidings of them, and that will sting his heart in his bosom; and we must depart out of this cave lest Finn and the deadly hounds overtake us.” Then he went unknown to Finn or to the fian of Erin to the place wherein were Diarmuid and Grainne, and he greeted Diarmuid, and what he said was: “What is this thing that thou hast done, O O’Duibne?” “Wouldst thou make peace on those conditions if thou wert to get them?” asked Angus. Diarmuid went to his own people, and Muadan put his hair and his hook upon his rod, and caught three salmon. Diarmuid urged the tun up again, and the third man mounted upon it; and he thus was slain like the others. “That is a goodly company,” said Grainne; and she called her attendant handmaid to her, and told her to bring to her the jewelled golden-chased goblet which was in the bower behind her. Diarmuid and Gráinne. All that were in Tara rose at early morn on the morrow, and they found Diarmuid and Grainne wanting from among them, and a burning jealousy and rage seized upon Finn. “I will not go out to you,” said Diarmuid, “for thou art a friend to me, and thy father; and I would not that he should bear the enmity of Finn for my sake.” He drew near to another wattled door, and asked who was at it. “I have not,” said Diarmuid, “for I had rather give them long torment than short; for it is not in the power of any warrior nor hero in Erin to loose the binding with which they are bound, but only four; that is, Oisin the son of Finn, and Oscar the son of Oisin, and Lugaid of the Mighty Hand, and Conan mac Morna; and I know that none of those four will loose them. “It suffices me that thou divide them,” said Grainne. Then Diarmuid told them his tidings from first to last, and it lacked but little of Grainne’s falling into the numb stupor of instant death through the fear and the horror of that story. “I swear,” said Deirdriu, “that it was Diarmuid O’Duibne himself that was there, and do ye bring your hounds with you and loose them on his track, and I will send Finn and the fian of Erin to you.” Story of Diarmuid and Gráinne Transcribed Sayings in the Parish of Inagh Transcribed (no title) Transcribed “I may not deceive thee,” said Diarmuid; “therefore I now tell thee it is to seek them by fair means or foul that I am come.” “It is a wonder that thou shouldest give me that love instead of Finn,” said Diarmuid, “seeing that there is not in Erin a man that is fonder of a woman than he; and knowest thou, O Grainne, on the night that Finn is in Tara that he it is that has the keys of Tara, and that so we cannot leave the stronghold?” Again Angus went where Diarmuid and Grainne were, and asked Diarmuid whether he would make peace with Cormac and with Finn. “Cailte mac Ronain,” said the druid. At Rath Finn he met his death; “Who art thou that askest?” said they. He found his trackers before him on the plain, that is the Clan Neamuin, and he bade them follow Diarmuid and Grainne. Now thou wentest and certain of the chiefs of the fian together with thee, to enjoy that banquet in Bruiden Chaorthainn, and Midach caused some of the mould of Innis Tuile to be placed under thee, so that thy feet and thy hands clove to the ground; and when the king of the World heard that thou wast thus bound down, be sent a chief of an hundred to seek thy bead. “I will now depart, O O’Duibne, and this counsel I leave thee; not to go into a tree having but one trunk in flying before Finn; and not to go into a cave of the earth to which there shall be but the one door; and not to go on to an island of the sea with but one channel between it and the land. Then Diarmuid rose with a light, bird-like bound, so that he descended from above upon the javelin, and came down fairly and cunningly off it, having neither wound nor cut upon him. With Fionn on their trail, Fionn’s son Oisin warned him that Fionn was closing in on him. “I would fain,” said Grainne, “give them a feast, that 8O thou mightest win their love.” “Force me not to break peace with the Searban Lochlannach,” said Diarmuid, “for he would not the more readily let me take them.” He did not abandon the chase until he reached Doire Da Both, and he sent the tribe of Emain to search out the wood, and they saw Diarmuid and a woman by him. He had not been a long time there before he saw a great swift fleet, and a fearful company of ships, coming towards the land straight from the west; and the course that the people of the fleet took in coming to land was to the foot of the hill upon which was Diarmuid. Finn was thereupon admitted, and he himself and his people went before the king. “Who else cut the wood thus, and made a close warm enclosure thereof, with seven tight slender-narrow doors to it? But the boss’s daughter, Gráinne, has other ideas and Fionn’s personal bodyguard, Diarmuid, finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time. “Evil the company that is there,” said Diarmuid, “O ye of the lie, and of the tracking, and of the one brogue; and it is not the fear of your hand that is upon me, but from enmity to you I will not go out to you.” He drew near to another wattled door, and asked who was at it. I took their heads from them, and put them in the hollow of my shield, and brought in my left hand the jewelled golden-chased goblet, full of old mead, pleasant to drink, which was before the king. Numbing venom hath entered his wounds,  With Diarmuid all to herself, Grainne confessed her love for him, but … “I should be well pleased at that,” said Finn, “and I would give them and their posterity freedom for ever, and their father’s place among the fian, and bonds and securities for the fulfillment thereof to them for ever and ever.” This thread is archived. “Yonder,” said the druid, “is Goll mac Morna, the active, the warlike.” And then spoke Diorruing, and what he said was: “I myself could discover for thee a wife and a mate befitting thee.” Moreover, tell us who thou thyself art, or hast thou any word of the tidings of O’Duibne?” Posted on Youtube on the 29th of May 2016 by kayak Man. After that they journeyed on straight northward towards Sliab Echtge, and thence to the district of Ui Fiachrach, and as they passed through that district Grainne wearied; and when she considered that she had no man to carry her but Diarmuid, seeing that Muadan had departed, she took heart and began to walk by Diarmuid’s side boldly. “I am a young warrior seeking a lord,” said he, “and Muadan is my name.” Then I asked of them that were with me where we should go to be entertained that night. “Then,” said Grainne, “send word and messengers to thy daughter to bid her to prepare another feast, so that we may take the king of Erin and Finn mac Cumaill to her house; and how do we know but that there she might get a fitting husband?” There­upon two great feasts were prepared by Grainne and by her daughter for the length of a year, and at the end of that space and season word and messengers were sent for the king of Erin, and for Finn mac Cumaill, and for the seven battalions of the standing fian, and for the chiefs of Erin likewise, and they were for a year and a day enjoying that feast. Arise ye, O children of Diarmuid, He said that he would not give him to her, and that he thought it not too much that he himself should inherit so much of Diarmuid; but when Oisin heard that he took the staghound from the hand of Finn, gave him to Grainne, and then followed his people. Then they brought their hounds with them out of their ship, and loosed them upon the track of Diarmuid; but they left a druid attending upon the three chiefs that were bound. 1. Add to basket. Howbeit, I have not seen him for a year, and we shall, as many as there are here of us, get entertainment for this night there.’ Angus arose early, and what he said to Diarmuid was: Diarmuid rose at early day and beaming dawn on the morrow, and halted not until he had reached the aforesaid hill, and having gotten there he struck his shield mightily and soundingly, so that he caused the shore to tremble with the noise around him. Then a second man rose, and as he descended from above he chanced to fall crossways upon the sword, so that there were two portions made of him. The blood of thy body hath been shed. A tale from the Fenian Cycle of Irish mythology, it concerns a love triangle between the great warrior Fionn mac Cumhaill, the beautiful princess Gráinne, and her paramour Diarmuid Ua Duibhne. Now the nine Garbs of the fian were thus slain under a false appearance by the people of Finn. Then they made him give three shouts, in order that Diarmuid might hear him. Thereupon Diarmuid took his arms and his armor, and put his tapering finger into the silken string of the Gae Derg, and aimed a triumphant cast at the youth of the green mantle that was in the forefront of the host, so that he slew him with that cast; he made also a second cast at the second man, and slew him; and the third man he slew likewise. : Circalittoral Rock with Caryophyllia smithii represented the most common species with diarmuid and gráinne's rock Axinella...
