See Thurn. ZCP xv 248. Críth G. p. 107 . The term seems also to be extended to a lord having a client and his descendants for three generations , and to a lord whose client goes to an extern lord for the same period: isedh is t.¤ tigernais a tarthaigther triar and in tan is a fiadnaise a fhlatha bodein tucustar flaith echtrand rath don cheile ┐ ata a fhlaith bodein i n-aididin a dligid do thobairt do fhlaith echtrand re ré trir gen a fhuaidred uair o bed tri flatha for an ceile no tri ceile ag foghnom daenflaith, no tri flaithi duthaigh i n-aididin aen cheile ag foghnom daen flaith gin fuaidred is t.¤ tighernuis i tarthaighther triar when it is in the presence of the client's own lord that an extern lord has granted clientship to the client and his own lord is willing to hand over his dues to the extern lord for the space of three generations without opposition; for if the client have three lords or if there be three clients serving one lord or three native lords allowing one client to serve one (extern) lord without opposition there is (he is ?) t.¤ t. of three generations, O'Curry 1006 - 7 ( H 3.18, 428b ). conic imscar re righ nechtrann re re trir i saorrathuib, ┐ t.¤ tiagharnuis o sin amach `it is height of chieftainship from that out,' Laws ii 206.26 Comm. , `i.e. where the external chief becomes a man's natural chief by length of time, after the reign of three successive chiefs,' n. 0 t.¤ tighearnais i tarrathar triar, iv 378.13 Comm. Of a lord whose father and grandfather have also been lords: tuluch tiagarnais a tarraigter triar .i. dia rop flaith a athair ┐ a senathair ┐ rop flaith feisin is tuluch tiagharnais iarum .i. as uais a tiagarnas ar in tulaig iar tarrachtain trir fuirre. No is tigharna uais in tres fer for in tulaig, O'Curry 452 ( H 3.18, 241b ). This may be the sense in: cach toisich a th.¤ , ZCP xvii 47 § 6 . Cf. also in literal sense: luid ... connici in taulaig tigernais ... ós ur na Bóinne, CRR 36.y .

(b) muin tuilche (lit. ridge of a hill), apparently ref. to the scene of a crime or of an attempted crime: is edh is muin tuilchi ann in baile i roisi foghail dona harmaibh no do no haidhmibh dar triall in marbhadh do dénamh. Is edh is sechtar muin tuilchi ann cach inadh ó thá sin amach.

(c) tuige thuilche lit. covering a hill (of assembly), usually with follg. fri, hence perh. rivalry, opposition, contention, disputing (in an assembly), but perh. for táide tuilche 'hiding on a hill' = 'secret conspiracy' Celtica viii 153 n. 3 : eneclann na rig do tobairit (sic) ar aird sunn a tuigi tuilche friu, O'Curry 578 ( H 3.18, 287 ). no cumad i in tuigi tuilci `conspiracy on the hill' (as if from 1 táide) (in gloss on cosait tuilche), Laws i 176.9 Comm. timdibe flatha .i. eitir imdibe uaidh ria flaithemnus .i. tuige thuilce fris lan eneclann riu, O'Curry 456 ( H 3.18, 243a ). With vb.: is i cumal in tsofhir o gach gradh flatha tuigeas tulach fris .i. da tig bo ar fichit, O'Curry 577 ( H 3.18, 287 ). Cf. ni tulaid fri turigen tuigedar tuli mára muride, Corm. 42 = Corm.

Hence perh. tauilce .i. leith airecht, O'Curry 475 ( H 3.18, 248 ). The follg. perhaps contain a reminiscence of the legal sense of tulach: fāsaig dō tulcha mo brīathar, ZCP xi 96 § 53. tulcha briathar .i. comórtus, O'Cl. Cf. tulchubae (b).
