      "...He was lamented by his wife, the celebrated Meadhbh Leith-dherg, or"Meave the half-bred", daughter of Conan of Cualan, in a beautiful poempreserved in the Book of Leinster. The poem was recited by Meave over herhusband's grave as a funeral oration.

      Mocorb's son conceals renown.
      Well sheds his blood by his spears.
      A stone over his grave--'tis a pity--
      Who carried battle over Clu Mail.
      My noble king, he spoke not falsehood.
      His success was certain in every danger.
      As black as a raven was his brow.
      As white was his skin as the lime.
      Together we used to go on refections.
      As high was his shield as a champion;
      The fork against the kings of Erinn, sons of chiefs,
      He maintained his shield in every cause.
      Countless wolves he fed with his spear
      At the heels of our men in every battle.
      Seven battles fought he for his land.
      He swept over them like any razor.
      What battle of them--admirable the deed--
      At which he warded not off a hundred in every danger?
      The three battles of the Finn Fail;
      The battle of Ath-an-Scall, of the bloody field.
      The battle of Fossud--'twas the puissance of a hero--
      Was fought by the chief of Mogh Maein
      The battle of Glaise Chriche he broke (gained)
      The man who had the deciding of battles.
      The battle of Bernas the Hound fought;
      His valor brought blood upon his spears
      He defended by his arms his lands
      When he killed kings who were not weak.
      To conquer Gailian (Leinster) he raised a contest.
      Alas! that destruction has come upon the son!
