40for the narrowest circle of the kin,viz.the agnatic descendants
of a common grandfather. See Binchy, Linguistic and
Historical Value of the Ir. Law Tracts(Rhys lecture, 1943),
p. 30 , who regards theg. ¤ as an innovation introduced by the
jurists to replace, for most legal purposes, thederbḟine
45(descendants of a common great-grandfather), which was the
older unit. See alsoMac Neill,Celtic Ireland,p. 161 seq. and
p. 171 seq. , where the question is fully discussed. According
to him thegelḟineincluded three generations,i.e.an
individual, his sons and grandsons; from the standpoint
50of the youngest generation it would comprise five classes;
the representative of that generation, father, uncles, their
sons and grandfather; from the standpoint of a member of
the middle generation it would comprise himself, father, sons,
brothers and nephews.Cf., however:i ngilfine iar mbelaib
