n in the stereotyped legal phrase: co nómad nó, meaning apparently to the ninth descendant (generation). The word is variously written, but rhymes support the form nó. ma beith fognum diib do ḟlaithib co nómad naó, it bothaig, it fúidri if they are in the service of lords to the ninth generation, they are of the class of `bothach' or `fuidir', Laws iv 320.19 (`till the ninth nine [year]', MacNeill, Law of Status 296 , i.e. 81 years or three generations). ni tet [a]itire acht co crō, teit raith for comarba go no[m]ud nó the `aitire'-suretyship extends only till death, the `raith'-suretyship passes to heirs to the ninth generation, Cóic Con. Fug. 33 § 32. dofechar o Día co nómad noe (the murder of a kinsman) is punished by God to the ninth generation, ZCP xi 85 § 38 (náu, noa, noo, nó MSS.). biaid forib co no- madh naó (.i. co haimsir nonbair) Noinden Ulad, Sitzungsb. der k. sächs.

Dinds. iv 130.88 . mēraid sin co nomad nó (: gó), BColm. 100.12 .

The word is connected with noí nine by Meyer ( ZCP x 351 ), Thurneysen, who suggests that it is a g p. formed on the analogy of bó, cnó ( ZCP xiv 1 - 4 ), and Pokorny who takes it to stand for the ordinal ( ZCP xiii 41 ); by Stokes, O'Dav. 547 , taken as = n-ó (n-aue) g p. of aue grandson, see also ZCP xiv 320 where the same view is put forward by Ó Briain.

Prob. outside legal use the phrase was equivalent to for ever ; cf. the Eng. custom of granting a lease for 999 years.
