adj i,

(a) red (? blushing), perh. orig. meaning. ruanaidh .i. dearg, O'Cl. ruanuidh ainm dílios don derg, Met. Gl. D § 21 (ruanaigh v.l.) Diarmaid Ruanaidh .i. Díarmaid derg, Cóir An. § 134 , where another explanation of the sobriquet is also given. From the story of Diarmaid R. as given elsewhere ( BNnÉ 304 § 16 , § 17 ; Keat. iii 1922 - 45 ) it seems to have been bestowed on him on account of his submissive behaviour towards Mochuda and to mean bashful, timid ( Keat. 1945 explains ruanuidh as = deargthach `bashful'), but later to have been understood in sense (b). Cf. forsin rūanaid (.i. a ruidiud ig gabáil lāma Mocuta), ZCP xiii 381 § 35 (of Di- armaid R.). rúanaid atberthe co sse | frisseom ar mēt a náire, LU 9579 (i.e. he was called R. from his modesty) = ar met a náne `the greatness of his splendour', ZCP iii 204 ( LL 276b34 . where the facs. reads: a áne); the LU reading may be the orig. one, changed in later versions to suit the later explana- tion. ¤corob rūanaidh don bēim bloody (?), ZCP viii 104 z (B. na f.).
