Togail bruidne Da Derga ‘The destruction of Da Derga's hostel’
- Ulster Cycle, Cycles of the Kings
Early Irish narrative text about Conaire Mór, from his conception and rise to power to the violation of his gessi and death at the siege of the hostel of Da Derga. For the earlier, shorter version, see Orgain (or Togail) brudne Uí Dergae.
Old Irish tale of Uí/Da Derga’s hostel (bruiden), which is thought to have been contained in the lost Cín Dromma Snechtai. Tantalisingly, Ii gives only a summarised version of events, in stark contrast to the later, considerably expanded version known as Togail bruidne Da Derga.
