    And many are the wrong judgments that Finn has passed on us, and for us victory with the foreigners would be better than with him. In a note to Rawlinson B. Mondadori, Milano The harbour is exposed to the gales from the south-east. And they fought a combat sharp, bloody, masterly?

    Thereafter those two equally eager and keen armies poured forth against each other, like dense woods, and with their proud battle of Ventry Harbour book strokes, and spilling a black deluge, actively, fiercely, perilously, angrily, furiously, destructively, boldly, vehemently, hastily, and great was there the grating of swords against bones, and the cracking of bones that were crushed, and bodies that were mangled, and eyes that battle of Ventry Harbour book blinded, and arms that were shortened to the back, and mother without son, and fair wife without mate. It was then that Druimderg, the son of Dolar, the son of Dorchaide, the king of the fianns of Ulster, was near the foreigner, and he had with him a venomous spear, that was in the possession of the Clanna Rudraige one after the other, and the Croderg the Red-socketed was its name. And while the people, generation after generation, took comparatively slight interest in the deeds and renown of living chiefs, and soon forgot the notables of the age just past, they carefully retained the exploits of heroes, some altogether fabulous, and others of whom nothing was authentic but their names and their existence in the third century. Then came the ladies and gentlewomen, and the minstrels and gleemen and skilled men of the fianns of Erinn to search for and to bury the kings and princes of the fiann, and every one of them that was curable was carried where he might be healed. Conan then went to the battle again, and not worse were his deeds on this occasion.

Such like was the cutting and the striking which those two inflicted on each other, and that was the progress of the combat, though the foolish fighting of the warrior-woman was long, a blow from Finn reached her, and cut through the royal diadem, so that the breast of the hauberk withstood the sword. Then they raised their two beautifully-bordered shields with speckled points against each other, and poised the frightfully-wounding fearful spears, and the iron-bladed gold- ornamented swords, and made a quick vehement attack for a long time. And again I pledge my faith,' said Fergus, 'if every second or every third man of those that are in the battle had firebrands in their hands as they strike each other, not more terrible would be the blaze of fire from them on high than the fire that comes out of the rims of their helmets and their battle-hats and their battle-hauberks, from the thin edges of the firm axes and of the sharp-pointed heroes' swords.
