II Transf.

(a) the seat of honour in a king's or chief's hall; perhaps an earlier use than the follg., point- ing to a primitive arrangement like that in the old Icelandic house, where the seat of honour was in the middle of the northern bench facing south. Cf. Laws iv 338.15 (describ- ing arrangement of a king's banqueting-hall): cuslennaigh ... a n-airt[h]iur ḟoitsi. isinn leth eliu a fochlu fénnid `his champion's seat' (`on the other side, in the north, a man at arms', MacNeill PRIA xxxvi C 16. 306 , see n . ib.; Plummer suggests reading: isin leth chliu a fochlu fein- nid[a] `on the left is his champion's seat (MS. notes s.v.). Binchy, Críth G. 591 , prints: ailiu, i fochlu, which agrees with MacNeill's rendering, but compare the exx. of f.¤ feinneda below). i nairt[h]iur fochlai `on the east side of the champion's seat' ib. (= Críth G. 597 , `in the north-east' Vocab. s.v. airther). f.¤ nomen do suidhe na flatha, Corm. Y 656 . f.¤ didiu cach suidiu n-a[i]rechda 698 . fochlu ... nomen primsuidhe ina himda, O'Dav. 841 (citing Corm. Y 698 , see (b) below). ar síul ar belaib fochlu .i. ar crann siu[i]l ┐ i n-airidhiu ib. f.¤ fó .i. suidhe flatha no tighearna, O'Cl. In older literature, however, the name seems to have been given not to the king's (or chief's) seat but to that of his champion or chief man at arms; hence generally called f.¤ fénneda (possibly in these exx. the word is of different origin; cf. 2 fochla). [f]ochla (féinneadh) IGT, Decl. § 2 (m.; n p. fochla, -dha). It seems to have been usually oppo- site the king's seat; dobrethsat póca do Choin Culainn ┐ rafucsat leo dond ḟochlai ḟennida RC xiv 426x . ra innis [Cú Chulainn] do Chonchobur ┐ sé san ḟochlai ḟennida na ḟiad- naisi LL 263b12 ( MU² 229 ; the pron. sé presumably refers to Cú Chulainn). dochonnairc C. raet rob ingnad leis isin tigh n-ola .i. ingen ... isin [ḟ]ochla ḟéinned, Acall. 3251 . isind fhoclúi féinnida in tige fri enech ríg isind leith anall BDD 74 U (ḟochlu Y). Later heroic romance speaks of more than one f.¤ fénneda: tainic Ferccus ┐ do thóccaibh [sic leg.] a arma os a chionn isin ḟ.¤ ḟeinnidh ┐ tainic M. isin f.¤ ḟeinnidh oile ar ionchaibh Ferccusa ITS v 84.9 (cf. isin fochla thuaiscertach tige ib. 6 ). san f.¤ fheinned a n-imdaid na hursand ... san fh.¤ fheinned isan iar[sh]lis ar a n-agaid, Celt. Rev. i 296 . See also cit. from O'Cl. under 2 fochla. Cf. fuaim iar fochlu (= fame according to precedence in valour or dignity ? throughout the north ?) LL 124b40 (chev.). Fig. of a champion: fo fer Fergus ... f.¤ do rígaib mac Rosa, Celt. Rev. ii 20 . Cf. flaith .i. fochla, Thr. Ir. Gl. 19 ( LB 267a12 ). This not in Corm. Y or M, and is perhaps corrupt. In: fochlu .i. feinnidh, O'Dav. 841 , the latter word is probably gen. depending on fochlu.

(b) Incorrectly interpreted by glossators as the warrior's seat in a chariot (Ériu xxi 94-98) : bátar sinde riadatar a fochlai fria faitsi .i. do suidhiu ind erred isin charput as nomen a fochlae, Corm. Y 698 s.v. gaire. O'Dav. 841 .
