III In Laws (usually as vn. of in-cuirethar) a putting in , esp. of putting or bringing into a territory the symbols of taking possession, making entry (see Laws iv 8 ff. ): eccur ┐ innred Aird Machae, AU 793.4 . ni sai for fine nach ecur n-inndligtech `no unlawful putting-in (of stock) is fastened upon the tribe' Laws ii 306.1 (see ZCP xiv 379 § 43 ). tuinede la fer n-ecoir (this is a case of) permanent possession for the man who puts in (the requisite stock) (i.e. the man making entry) ZCP xv 346 § 37 . ni dlig flaith saer-raith...corr-ecor selba the chief who gives free stock has no claim to anything over what is requisite for making entry (?) Laws ii 202 x . Cf. ZCP xv 246 - 247 . Applied to the putting in to the pound of distrained cattle; the relation between the moment of actual impounding and the arrival of relief being of legal importance, three cases are distinguished: rianeacur, where the impounding is made only shortly before [after (?)] the intervention to stay it; ecor, where impounding and such intervention are simultaneous ;and iarnecor, where the cattle have been taken to the plaintiff's house before the intervention, Laws ii 110 - 112 Comm. Hence, loosely, of the pound itself, the `appointed place' : iar n-a breith cu ruice in eacur .i. cu ruice in inud urdalta amach, 112.23 Comm.

Cf. eacur colla fiach adgairtur di colla athgabail....i. ecur colla na hathgabala a colaibh na fiach acurtur and, Laws ii 98.5 , where transl. takes eacur as imperat. pass. of the verb (in-cuirethar), perhaps rightly.
