Lugh's Shield


Lugh scéith, scál find, fo nimib ni raibe bed mac nÁine aidhlibthir

Arddu déib doen, dron daurgráinne, glan gablach, aue Luric Loegaire. Lugh's shield,

A bright hero,

Under the sky there was none,

As mighty as the son of Aine,

A man higher than the gods,

A firm acorn,

Pure branching (progeny),

Grandson of Loegaire Lorc
