Cite this: eDIL s.v. dam-gaire or dil.ie/14507

n ia, f. (fem. LL 118 a 13 . IT iii 89. 11 .) Usually translated a herd of stags or deer (Stokes, Lism. L. p. 389 , 410 b 2 —but 240. 30 stags in heat , as TTr.² 1159 — Kuno Meyer, Contr.). But the frequent appearance of damgaire in phrases such as `oc búiriud, oc béicid amal dam damgaire, dorddan (daim) damgaire,' and, like cúgaire, as the object of rocluinethar, seems to indicate the meaning a bellowing or roaring of a stag . This is not disproved by the place-name Druimm Damgaire, nor by the passage Lism. L. p. 389 . Damgaire like cúgaire has short penultimate, as shown by the rhyme with `glaine,' Anecd. ii 24. 3 , and by IT iii 89. 11 , both cited below.
