part The follg. exx. are prob. to be explained as = nád (cop.) + é, :

(a) nade in meicc macc hui Chuind, ACC 104 ( RC xx 276 ) = nad in meic mac hui Chuind, LU 1053 ; nade mc, YBL ; nade in meicc, Rawl. ; naidi in mac, Laud. The Comm. RC xx 276 gives the gloss : naide .i. cuich no cia. Náide an mac mac uí Chuinn .i. cia an mac mac ui Chuinn ; folld. by O'Cl. giving citation in the same form, and by P. O'C. Stokes translates : `It is not the son's, the son of C.'s descendant.' The reading : náde in mac may be connected with the follg. words : cuil deim de eót, and may mean : the son of C.'s descendant is not the son (who . . .).

(b) nade .i. ni derna, ut poeta dicit : nade in corp atchí cen chair | nach ní bad maith di[a] anmain [leg. maith dia a.], | acht is [é] a amles huile | dognid ar bith bar[r]buide, RC xx 276 ( ACC 104 Comm. ) = náide an corp adchi gan chair | nach ní do mhaith dia anmain, O'Cl. s.v. naide (with gloss : naide .i. ní dhearna). Stokes translates : `the body which thou seest did not without sin aught that would be good for its soul.' Perhaps : it is not the body which sees without fault what would be, etc.
