(a) Name given to the Ulster couvade or period during which the Ulstermen were debili- tated and unable to fight. There are two independent accounts of the cause, one published in ZCP viii 120 (< Harl. 5280 f. 44b ); the other exists in varying versions, two of which (from Harl. 5280 f. 42b and LL 125b42 - 126a resp.) are published by Windisch, Berichte der Sächs. Gesellsch. der Wissenschaften 1884 p. 336 fg. , a third of later date from H. 3.18 p. 46b by Thurneysen, ZCP xii 251 ; in Harl. and LL the tale is entitled Noinden Ulad. See Thurneysen Helden- sage 359 fg. Acc. to LL: cóic laa ┐ cethri aidche no coic aidche ┐ cethri laa. issed sin ro boí noinden Ulad.

Meyer, Wortk. 222 , translates neunspitzig `nine-pointed', taking the word as a compd. of endach `pointed' < ind.
