(a) name of the process of taking possession of land, etc. , see the tract Din Techtugad, Laws iv 2 - 64 . The claimant entered a certain distance on to the land, taking with him animals (for grazing) and witnesses (the word somet. designates these rather than the actual process: acht t.¤ do breith `provided that he has brought the means of taking possession,' 4.15 ). The procedure was divided into three periods of ten days: a forba na cét dechmaide ... na dechmaide medonchi ... na dechmaide deigenaighe, 3.23 - 4.4 , the distance travelled and the number of the accompanying animals and witnesses increasing with each period. The requirements varied somewhat according as the claimant was a man or a woman: brig ... isi conmididhar banteallach .i. isi ro meisemnaigestar in t.¤ banda, 16.1 - 10 . ni bi i mbantellach acht co coirib, ┐ losat, ┐ criathar ... .i. ni dligtech do breith do techtughadh ferainn acht cairig ..., i 148.1 , 12 text and Comm. Possession was established at the end of the third period: is na teora dechmaid ata dligedh in techtaigthe ... dlegair de a crod uile do breith ind `in three times ten days the legal right of possession is to be conceded ... it is required of him (he has the right ?) to bring all his cattle there', iv 20.12 . In some cases (for grazing purposes only ?) the process was unnecessary: tir dibad coitcind, uair noco neicen apad teora ndechmad imesein, na t.¤ do breith indti; but land on loan or rented (?) had to be recovered in this way: in ferand do berar ar óin no ar fochraic, is ind berair in t.¤ , 22.37 . for oin tucadh in ferann sunn; ┐ atathar iar re na hona 'g-a techtadugh, v 496.y . Where no grazing was available, only witnesses were required: in ferann ac na bi faichthi re breith cethra ind da t.¤, amhuil ata Dun Araill, uair is daine berar da t.¤-side, iv 24.1 .
