2 náde? partThe follg. exx. are prob. to be explained as =nád
(cop.) +é,:
(a)nade in meicc macc hui Chuind, ACC 104 ( RC xx 276 ) =
nad in meic mac hui Chuind, LU 1053 ;nade mc, YBL ;nade
60in meicc, Rawl. ;naidi in mac, Laud. The Comm. RC xx 276
gives the gloss :naide .i. cuich no cia. Náide an mac mac uí
Chuinn .i. cia an mac mac ui Chuinn; folld. by O'Cl. giving
citation in the same form, and by P. O'C. Stokes translates :
`It is not the son's, the son of C.'s descendant.' The reading :
65 náde in macmay be connected with the follg. words :cuil
deim de eót, and may mean :the son of C.'s descendant is not
the son (who
. . .).
(b)nade .i. ni derna, ut poeta dicit : nade in corp atchí cen
chair | nach ní bad maith ┐ di[a] anmain [leg.maith dia a.], |

276 ( ACC 104 Comm. ) =náide an corp adchi gan chair | nach
ní do mhaith dia anmain, O'Cl.s.v. naide(with gloss :naide
.i. ní dhearna). Stokes translates : `the body which thou seest did
not without sin aught that would be good for its soul
.' Perhaps :
75 it is not the body which sees without fault what would be,etc.
