A Eochaid Airtt Fuath arafalnather iath aneoil), in the course of which he prophecies the coming of Brigit (Brig eoit).

- Early Irish
- No linguistic analysis is known at this stage to arrive at a reliable dating of the composition of the text. As far as suggestions have been made at all, the text is usually regarded as early or potentially early. For the second rosc, James Carney (1989) has suggested a date of c.600.
