The old inflexion is represented by n s. Daui, Dau, Dái: g s. Duiach (cf. ái poetry: gen. uath): n p. Dauich. In Mid.-Ir. MSS we meet with a double inflexion, one starting from the n s. Daui, Dau, forming the g s. Daui, Dai; the other from the oblique cases (and n p.) forming the n s. Duach. For n s. Daui cf. fili, oígi. Daui is a npr. in -vik like Ogh. DENA-VECA (g s., † Dianach), Ogh. RITTA-VECAS (g s., Rethach). Its Ogh. equivalent would probably be † Ogh. DAVOVECCA or † Ogh. DASU-VECCA (= Dauoch), if, as is not unlikely, it is to be compared with Gaul. DAVOS or Gaul. DASVVIOS. Dau appears to have become obsolete as a npr. as early as the early 7th century; the gen. Duach, however, lingered on throughout the Mid.-Ir. period in connection with síl, 1 dál, clann, Húi, and in place-names with Clúain, Ard ( Ard nDuach, Laud 610, 99 a 1 ), &c.—Derived from Dau is Duichne, q.v.
