In Mod.Ir. the formnaomhadh(naoimheadh), refashioned
fromnaoi<noí, is used:an náomhadh húair, Matth. xx. 5.
ansa naomhadh bliadhain, Jerem. xxxix 1. san naoidhiu-
ghadh airtegal, Luc. Fid. 52.21 (corrupt spelling).

(a)in strict sensea specified period of time , defined by Loth,
15 RC xxv 134 fg . as9 days and 9 nights; by Stokes, RC xii 122
as9 periods of 8 hours(or 3 days); by Meyer, Aisl. MC Gloss.
as an ennead of9 hours (= 3½ days); and by Thurneysen,
ZCP xiv 348 as an ennead of12 hours (= 4½ days); this last
definition is supported by Laws ii 240.19 fg. , a passage in
20which 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
25(days of 24 hours) together with a `nómad' made up 7 natural
days, hence a `nómad' =4½ natural days. The term also
appears equated withnoínden:conid de baí in cess for
Ulltaib fri re nomaide, Dinds. 94 ( RC xvi 45.15 ); see also ZCP
iii 240.7 quoted below.
30In literature the word seems to be used rather loosely for
a period of 3 daysor 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)
35allowed by surgeons,etc.for resting an injured limb . . . the
period after which a sick person is declared out of danger
