Forms: enechlann, enechclann

n. (?) later f. and m. IGT, Decl. § 12 , §10 . Thurneysen ( ZCP xiv 342 , xvi 206 ) brings the word from 1 enech and glan, the original meaning being face-clearing (cf. Laws iv 318x , cited under 1 enech II). According to Hamp 1 enech + clú, Ériu xxv 266-67 , see also Études Celt. xxxii 220-21 . In later MSS. enechlann is sometimes found. enechclann, Rawl. 118b39 , etc.

(a) compensation for insult, loss, or injury, for anything constituting a violation of enech (see 1 enech), pro- portionate to the status of the person to be compensated. In Laws Commentary it frequently renders lóg n-enech (e.g. Laws v 516.10 ). When the injury consisted in the death of a relative the eneclann was proportionate to the status of those to whom it was due, thus, although it occasionally renders díre (e.g. Laws i 42.14 v 50.5 Comm. ), it was in its early technical meaning distinct from corpdíre, which was proportionate to the status of the deceased. Distinguished from smacht: cach uair i[s] smacht ictar ann, is a ic fo aicned inti icas, ┐ cach uair is eneclann, is a ic fo aicnedh inti risi n-ictar, Laws iii 496.10 .

Claims involving eneclann were urgent: ni dam enecland anad `honour-price does not admit of stay' (of distress) Laws i 120.19 ; but cf. 228.17 ; ii 100.7 , and cases of: eneclann ar treisi stay of eneclann-claim for three days i 162.19 Comm.

In certain cases only fractions of the full value of eneclann were due: ac so heneclanna fuil isna cneadaib, in aenmad rann fichet d'eneclann isin mbainbeim aicenta, sechtmadh eneclainne isin cnocbeim, etc., O'Curry 694 < H 3.18, 336 .

For eneclann due in regard to literary compositions see Laws v 230 ff .

n o, n. and m. (oén) n s. (with art.) a n-oinach sin, Ériu ii 100.1 (Tenga Bithnua). a n-óenach, LU 3239 ( SCC 3 ). óenach mbúada, 4549 . ( TBC-LL¹ 59 ). Later masc. áonach (m., g s. -aigh, n p. -aighi), IGT Dec. § 55.11 .

(a) in primary sense `a reunion', hence a popular assembly or gathering , generally (though not exclusively) for games, races, and similar contests, as distinguished from an `airecht' or assembly for communal business; commonly transld. `fair', though it does not seem to have been intended for com- mercial purposes. The chief oenaige were held periodically at fixed places. The word is often used of the place where the assembly was held and hence figures in many place-names, usually folld. by a gen. but occas. absol., e.g. mod. Nenagh (Co. Tipperary) < an Aenach < a n-oenach; fón Aenach, AU ii 376.15 (= mod. Enagh. Co. Roscommon). See Hog. Onom. s.v. oínach .

Triads 35 : tri háenaig Hérenn: áenach Tailten, á. Crúachan, á. Colmáin Ela.

In follg. exx. seems used as a semi-abstract: a haithle a n-oenaig ┐ a n-aniusa (= their sports), FA 30. bíadd prantigi . . . ised aonach ndedenach indsin is coir do imbirt isna mbelaib iar praind hi sessam, Mon.
