75§ 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
80towards Mochuda and to mean bashful,timid ( Keat. 1945
explainsruanuidhas =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,
