The lvarriors of Swaran fled then, pursued by the sons of Fingal, till the hero bade the fighting cease, and dark­ ness once more fell over the dreadful field. ' The clouds of night come rolling down. Darkness rests on the steeps of Cromla. The stars of tl1e north arise over the rolling of Erin's 'vave::; : they she'v their heads of fire, through the flying inist of heaven.

Together they returned to Fingal's camp, and there the heroes sang and feasted until ' the soul of Cathullin rose. The strength of his arm returnt;d. Gladness brightened along his face. Thus the night passed away in song. We brought back the morning witl1 joy. ' Fingal arose on the heath and shook his glittering spear. He moved first towards the plain of Lena. '1Ve followed in all our arms. '' ' We rose on the wave with songs. We rushed with joy through the foam of the deep! Thus the hero returned to his own land.

' The first was a certain race that came and was called Coranians, and so great was their knowledge that there was no discourse upon the face of the island, however low it might be spoken, but what, if the 'vind met it, it was known to them. ' The second plague 'vas a shriek which came on every l\1ay-eve over every hearth in the island of Britain. And this went through peoples' hearts and frightened them out of their senses.
