Irish weather prognostications (Calann Enair for domnach)
Brief prose text attributed to Fintan (mac Bóchra?) offering prognostications of the weather from the day of the week on which the first (calends) of January falls. It belongs to the type of prognostics that is often known by the Latin title Revelatio (or Supputatio) Esdrae, after the prophet Ezra.
