[of the large eyes]. Wife of Dáire (2) and queen of Tír Tairngire, called ‘sinless’ because she and her husband have intercourse only to produce Ségda Sáerlabraid, whom Conn hopes will remove the moral blight from Ireland. She saves her son from being sacrificed at Tara by taking the form of a wailing woman with a lowing cow. Additionally, Rígru also warns Conn Cétchathach [of the Hundred Battles] that Ireland will remain a wasteland until he puts aside the evil Bé Chuma.
