Due to their variety, it is not always clear from the ending of a declensional form which case-form of which stem-class the ending represents.

Old Irish distinguishes four major groups of pronouns, which are: personal, possessive, interrogative, and demonstrative pronouns. These are divided into several subclasses. Personal pronouns exist for all three persons, singular and plural, with a distinction of the three grammatical genders in the 3rd person singular.

Proclitic and enclitic forms are far more numerous than the stressed ones. The proclitic forms became attached to a pretonic preverb and are therefore considered to be 'infixed' in the verbal form. Three different sets of infixed personal pronouns exist, whose usage depends on phonological and syntactical constraints. The enclitic forms are suffixed either to certain verbal forms or to prepositions, with which they combine to give the so-called 'conjugated prepositions' cf.

A detailed description of the personal pronoun will follow in lesson 3, section The possessive pronouns are formally the old genitive forms of the personal pronoun, and are therefore not inflected. Again, stressed and unstressed forms exist, with the stressed ones being used very rarely. Details on the possessive pronoun will be given in lesson 3, section For details on the interrogative pronoun see lesson 8, section The adjectival demonstratives known from other IE languages are expressed in Old Irish by a combination of the definite article with adverbs of place, like so , se , sin , etc.

Details on the article and on the demonstratives will be given in lesson 6, section General Inquiries: Student Inquiries: When Cu Chulainn was in Dun Imrid, he heard something, a roaring of the cattle. And he woke up from his sleep and he threw himself out of his bed so that he reached the bench that was sitting on the floor. After that, outside with him, into the yard. And it was she, his wife, who brought his clothing and his armour on his trail. And he saw something, Laeg, in front of him, in his harnessed war-chariot, at Ferta Laeg, from the north.

He snatches the brain out of the hand of one of them, and carries it off; for he knew that it had been foretold of Mesgegra that he would avenge himself after his death. In every battle and in every combat which the men of Connaught had with those of Ulster, Cet used to carry the brain in his girdle to see whether he could compass a famous deed by slaying a man of Ulster with it. The men of Ulster overtook him in pursuit after him. Then the men of Connaught came up from the other side to rescue him. A battle is fought between them. Conchobar himself went into the battle. And it was then that the women of Connaught begged Conchobar to come aside so that they might see his shape.

For there was not on earth the shape of a human being like the shape of Conchobar, both for beauty and figure and dress, for size and symmetry and proportion, for eye and hair and whiteness, for wisdom and manners and eloquence, for raiment and nobleness and equipment, for weapons and wealth and dignity, for bearing and valour and race. That Conchobar was faultless indeed. However, it was by the advice of Cet that the women importuned Conchobar.

Then he went aside alone to be seen by the women. He adjusts the brain of Mesgegra in the sling, and throws it so that it hit the crown of Conchobar's head, so that two-thirds of it entered his head, so that he fell upon his head forward to the ground. The men of Ulster ran towards him, and carried him off from Cet.

His grave is there where he fell, and a pillar-stone at his head, and another at his feet. He puts a cord around him, and carries him upon his back to Ardachad 9 of the Fews. The attendant's heart broke within him.


If it is not taken out, however, I would heal thee, but it will be a blemish for thee. And the physician said to Conchobar that he should be on his guard lest anger should come on him, and that he should not mount a horse, that he should not have connexion with a woman, that he should not eat food greedily, and that he should not run. At that time a great trembling came over the elements, and the heavens and the earth shook with the enormity of the deed that was then done, even Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God, to be crucified without guilt.

And he was one of the two men that had believed in God in Ireland before the coming of the p. Altus, however, used to visit Conchobar with exchanges of treasures from Tiberius, the son of Augustus the Roman. For at that time stewards of the King of the Romans were equally over the centre of the world and over the islands of the west and east, so that every famous story that would happen there was equally known in the world.

For Altus told him that it was Christ who had made Heaven and earth, and that to redeem mankind He had assumed flesh. Altus was a believer. This is what they say, 16 that he was the first pagan who went into the Kingdom of Heaven, because the blood which he had shed was a baptism to him, and because he had believed in Christ. Then towards the gathering came Bochrach, a poet and druid of the men of Leinster, having come out of Leinster after learning poetry.

Of him Conchobar asked tidings of Alba and Leth Moga.

To save and to rescue the men of the world from the sin of Adam He came from holy heaven; and He assumed flesh from the Virgin Mary without the presence of man 18 ; and to save the human race He went upon the tree of the cross by command of the Jews. For at that time stewards of the king of the world were equally over the centre of the world and in the islands of the setting and rising sun, so that every famous story that happened was equally known in the whole world.

For Altus told him that p. On the day that Christ was crucified, Conchobar was at a gathering, and the nobles of the men of Ireland around him. Now when darkness came upon the sun, and the moon turned into the colour of blood, Conchobar asked of Cathbad what ailed the elements. Hence the Gaels say that Conchobar was the first pagan who went to Heaven in Ireland, for the blood that sprang out of his head was a baptism to him. And then Conchobar's soul was taken to hell until Christ encountered her as He brought the captive host out of hell, so that Christ took the soul of Conchobar with Him to Heaven.

Fingen, the wizard-leech of Conchobar, 'tis he who would not let the stone be taken out of his head. Muma, however, the artificer, 'tis he who put a cover around it outside his head. Bachrach, a Leinster poet, told Conchobar that Christ had been crucified. In Mag Lamraige he told it to him.

Seventy-three feet was his length. In his grave [ Though thou wast an enemy to him, he hid thee, he nourished thee for seven full years: when he went to avenge the King of laws, 'tis then was found his grave through thee. They were found out. He was unable to work the spell upon the lake. And thereupon he slew thirty of the drowners, and Aed escaped from them.

No translation supplied by Meyer. He owned seven herds of cattle, seven score kine in each herd, and a plough-team with each herd.

He also kept a guest-house. Now it was a geis for him that a woman should come in a company to his house without his sleeping with her, unless her husband were in her company. Then Brig Brethach, wife of Celtchar, went to his house. That night he sleeps with her. Lists with This Book. Community Reviews. Showing Rating details. More filters. Sort order.

Jun 03, Pye Josephus Joestar rated it liked it. So I was really enjoying the previous books, it seemed like the writing was getting better and better, but I did realize that it's not exactly Randy's writing that's getting better. I realized that the stories were literal translations from certain bards or seanchies that had written the tales being read. My ultimate realization is that the Bard who wrote Chuchulains tales was a poor writer because everytime I read about this Irish hero of legend This book is about Chuchulain mostly featuring some prominent character of the Red Branch which had some potentially interesting stories but the lack of description was so off putting that I felt bored most of the time.

That's not to say I didn't enjoy reading the book but the build up to an event just felt more exciting than the climax for me personally. I would recommend this book to anyone who has read Randy's first book which was titles The Raid, as you don't really need to read any of the other three books before t his one, especially if you're only interested in learning about Chuchulainns tales.
