Forms: eangach

adj o-ā: the meaning is not certain, but from the contexts the most likely suggestion is: decorated with piece-work (or patches, either joined together or laid on appliqué) so as to form stripes or a chequer or pattern; this is suggested by the combination of epithets in CCath. 5312 (where allusion is no doubt to leather covering of shield); then probably connected with 2 eng (a), q.v.; cf. also O'Dav. 1056 (quoted ibid.): di sciathaib tuí tæbgela. ┐ corcra condualcha ┐ engacha úanidi LL 235 b45 = TTr. 1402 . trí scēith engacha co dtuágmhilaibh fiondruine forra TBC 5536 St. sciath engach uaine, Acall. 1035 .
