Agallamh Leborchaim‘A dialogue with Leborcham’verse beg. A ingen a lúath, a láeb, a Leborcham, cía Ultu ána acca?
- Late Old Irish, Early Middle Irish
- Ulster Cycle
A prose introduction, including a list of Ulster women, and passage of rosc that are found as part of the early Irish tale Talland Étair. According to the tale, Leborcham is sent north to warn the wives of Ulster heroes and notables of the impending misfortunes of their husbands in battle. Her warning is uttered in the form of a rosc in which she presents a vision of the bloody outcome of the fight. Scholars like Dobbs have regarded the text as an interpolation, although this view may be open to debate.
