10chaecha taircebat mo milliud mo rulad, LL 119b30 (Beochobra
Con C.). ruladh `slaughtering, massacring', O'R. See follg.

15 Acall. 457 , 461 ; O'Gr. SG 104.11 , 15 gives ruladh in both
lines and translates `passed away', `obscured'. Cf. as-lui ?

? rull (? roll) ind fir hÉrenn o thuind co tuind, | ní himmarbáig
im mór-ruill `about great pride (?)', Ériu i 132.70 ( LL 46b27 ).

rúm n room, interior space : in follg. exx. appar. used of the
20hold or interior of a sailing-vessel. rainic a cenn ┐ a colann i
rumh na rata . . . i raibhe, CCath. 2814 . ro tuitsetar . . . i ruma
na rat[h]a, 2838 ; `on the floor of the raft' Stokes in both exx.,
deriving it from O.N. and A.S. rúm; the ratis of Lucan ren-
dered in Irish by raith seems to have been rather a flat-
25bottomed boat or punt than a raft (see the description in
Phars. iv 420 fg. ). ruchtgal na rúm ica ruth, LL 236a16
( TTr. 1419 , `the rumbling of the hawsers'?). ro suidighset a
longa . . . ┐ ro lasat a rama uili ina rumaib `put all their oars

30 ? rumnad: ind menbad leca lis Lugdach | lasarumnad [rumnad
v.l.] cach ṅderba [ndremna v.l.], Ériu v 210.53 ( LL 125b6 );

rumpud (? rompud) n m., LL 267a18 , in description of a youth
who has eleven chains attached to his body with seven men
35at the end of each: com[.] rompur ferda feramail cu[sin?]

cend ind ḟir díb . . . risin carraic clochi issed atbered in fer-sin
`ní da thetarrachtain gaili na gascid berair in rumpud sin',
40 LL 267a11 fg . ( MU 34.12 fg. ), where apparently rompur
and rumpud are intended for the same word, perh. meaning
tug, wrench, twist or someth. similar (`uproar', MU where
rompur is not translated); perh. we should read rompud
(< ro-impód) in both cases. Cf. MU² p. 100 s.v. rompud.
