3 forrach n ā,f. apparently an area of more or less defined
extent; a meeting-place (O'Don. Perhaps orig. same word

of the King of Ulster, perh. the extent of territory within

In PRIA liv C described as vn. of for-rig `binds' but the
60existence of this verb is doubtful. See next.
Cf. Forrach in n.l., Onom.
