(a)

(i) The period of exemption following a certain testing period after the sale of any `sét' (article, animal or slave), sold in good faith without either party knowing of any radical defect (galar bunaid) or hidden blemish (ainim inchleithe). If the defect or blemish did not appear until after the testing period (i.e. during the `iubaile') the seller could not be sued. If, however, the seller knew of such defect or blemish at the time of the sale, its discovery at any time after the sale legalised the return of the `sét' and the repayment of the money (with or without further penalties), that is to say, in such a case there was no `iubaile.' Apparently as well as the testing period, an extra period of 10 days (dechmad na aititen) was sometimes allowed (during which the blemish could be brought to the notice of the seller (?)). The testing period in female slaves and animals seems, sometimes at least, to have corresponded to the period of gestation and O'Don. takes it to mean "period of gestation' but is probably wrong in this. iubaile or ré n-iubaile (ré na hiubaile) are used indifferently. ca trath nach fuil re niubaili do riagailt risin set ... acht a athchur uile ...
