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. ): ni
sai for fine nach ecur n-inndligtech `no unlawful putting-in
60(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
65stock 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
5cases are distinguished: rianeacur, where the impounding
is made only shortly before [after (?)] the intervention to stay
it; ecor, where impounding and such intervention are simul-
taneous ;and iarnecor, where the cattle have been taken
to the plaintiff's house before the intervention, Laws ii 110 -
10 112 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
15 ii 98.5 , where transl. takes eacur as imperat. pass. of the
verb (in-cuir), perhaps rightly.
