(a) in the term f.¤ céill (vn. of fris-cuirethar céill) applying one's mind to, attending to, cultivating (for construction cf. airmitiu féid and airbert biuth. Cf. f.¤ ceille, H 3.18 , cited below) : f.¤ ceill no frithgnom (gl. Gk. γυμνασια) Sg. 106b12 . freccor céil ídol (gl. idolorum cultura) Wb. 11b5 . oc frecur céill Dae, 29d6 . fri freccur cheill De. fri frecur ceill Dae Ml. 43a2 , 79b2 (gl. cultus in both cases). du frecur cheill siu a Dae, 106d3 . recht frecoir chéill cruithnechtae (gl. frumentaria lex) Sg. 35a11 . cf. isna frecru ceill (gl. ... in cola) Ml. 30d16 . f.¤ ceil no trebad in talman, Alex. 968 . f.¤ ceille in talman dia torad fadesin, H 3.18, 11ay = Laws iv 98.15 . f.¤ céill na scor `to repair the camp' TTr.² 1271 = LL 407a40 ( TTr. 2138 ; cf. Dares xxvii ). bid oc f.¤ ceill dia mathair, RC iii 344.21 (the editor's rendering `He will be under the care of his mother' is certainly wrong. A possible rendering is : He tends (the land) for his mother, or emending Bid occa f.¤ His mother attends to him, this seems less likely. The emendation : Bid a ḟ.¤ suggested Aisl. Óeng. p. 48 is also doubtful. Ó Coileáin, Celtica xx 167-68 , dismisses the line as a product of the confusion of two originally separate glosses). tirfrecur céill agriculture (dist. from `fiadach') Ml. 137c1 . at buidig do thorthib in talman cen tír-frecur-ceill, Alex. 841 (= frecar tir ceill, Anecd. v 2.21 , where the infixing of `tir' is peculiar).

(b) hence (with omission of céill ; see Desid. Gloss. s.v. freacrughadh) attending to, cultivating, practising: freacar .i. friotháileamh, O'Cl. freacar .i. fiadhnaisi ib. seems meant for freacra (frecrae). doinenn dermar ... gur tairmisc frecar na talman um na treabthachaibh, AU iii 460 . a[g] rómhar ┐ ag freacar na talamhan dō, ITS xvi 94.28 . f.¤ n-oiged, Ériu ix 46 § 11 = fognom, LL 147b22 . gach indstraimint ... do foigeonadh d' esbog do frecur ecluisi Dé BCC § 252 . do bi foirbthe a frecur ecluisi Dé who were perfected in the service ... ib. ag f.¤ ecluisi Torón serving the church of Tours (as bishop) § 255 . ni ro mill a tol frecur a deg[g]nim uimi his passions never injured his practice of good works CCath. 1190 (cf.
