Excerpt from Eriu, Vol. 2: The Journal of the School of Irish Learning, Dublin

Curoi, gen. Conroi, a dynast of West Munster, was the husband of Bl thnait, daughter of the king of the Isle of Man. She fell in love with ci'ichulainn, helped him to slay ci'iroi treacherously, and then fled with him to Ulster. Ferchertne, ci'iroi's faithful bard, determined to avenge his master, followed Bl thnait in order to kill her, and found her and her paramour standing with King Conchobar on the promontory of Cennbera. Art thou not Ferchertne? Asks Conchobar. I am, is the answer. Ci'iroi was bountiful to thee, says Conchobar. Truly he was bountiful, replies Ferchertne. Tell us somewhat of his bounty, says the king. I cannot do that now, says Ferchertne, for my spirit is broken after the murder of my lord. My hand will kill myself if it kill not some other. Then said Ferchertne the poet Not due to my soul is the deed that has quelled me, etc.' After reciting the Eulogy (amra) of ci'iroi, F erchertne rushed to Blathnait, caught her between his arms, broke her ribs, and flung her (and himself) forward down the clifl', so that a rock (loosened by his leap) crushed them both; and their grave is on the strand beneath the rock.
