Forms: nómaide, naemhaidhe, nae- mhaidhe, nómhaidi, nómaidhe

n ā,f. and nómaide , f. (later and commoner form): in early Mod.Ir. also with diphthong naemhaidhe. nae- mhaidhe nómhaidi, IGT Dec. § 3.31 . g s. nómaidhe, ib. ex. 145 .

(a) in strict sense a specified period of time , defined by Loth, RC xxv 134 fg . as 9 days and 9 nights; by Stokes, RC xii 122 as 9 periods of 8 hours (or 3 days); by Meyer, Aisl. MC Gloss. as an ennead of 9 hours (= 3½ days); and by Thurneysen, ZCP xiv 348 as an ennead of 12 hours (= 4½ days); this last definition is supported by Laws ii 240.19 fg. , a passage in which the processes in preparing malt are given with the time allotted to each: la co n-aidchi (.i. laithe aicinti) i folc ┐ tri la (.i. laithe co leith aicinta) for dibuirsin ┐ nomad (.i. nomad saerdha sain, secht laithe aicinta uile sain) a comlugad fo cotuige; from which it appears that 1+1½ `natural' days (days of 24 hours) together with a `nómad' made up 7 natural days, hence a `nómad' = 4½ natural days. The term also appears equated with noínden: conid de baí in cess for Ulltaib fri re nomaide, Dinds. 94 ( RC xvi 45.15 ); see also ZCP iii 240.7 quoted below.

In literature the word seems to be used rather loosely for a period of 3 days or somewhat more; freq. mentioned as the time for which a person dangerously wounded or ill lingers on or conversely as the time within which a cure is effected; cf. mod. naomhaidhe `a period (usually nine days) allowed by surgeons,etc. for resting an injured limb . . . the period after which a sick person is declared out of danger', Dinneen. ro aínius nómaid, LU 1350 = Im.
