adj walled (?) : teach fichti f.¤ ... cen dorus n-ann, BDD 6 (force forcae, forcho v.l.). dobert ... muca M. i dtech fithe forchai robai i faithchi in lis, Ériu xi 44 . Hardly a miswriting of fortcha (2 fortche) as suggested ib. 64 . Stokes, Gl. Ind. to BDD, suggests a corrupt spelling of forcthe, but this word is not recorded in a suitable sense, and it is unlikely that no text would have preserved it here. Cf. W. gwarchae ?
