In Mid.Ir. commonly treated as a weak ā-stem, but the
3 s. pret. ro rir (not to be confounded with ro-ír, from ernaid)
persists till a comparatively late period; an analogous forma-
tion is 1 s. pret. ro rer , ZCP xii 365.17 , Buile S. 38.24 . The
45fut. stem rir- occurs somet. in mixed formation with b- inflec-
tions: 1 s. noco ririub , LU 10778 ( IT i 127.30 ). 3 s. rel. rirfes,

to gloss it in old texts.
