On the morrow Medb sent twenty-seven men to Cú Chulainn’s bog. Fuilcarnn is the name of the bog, on this side of Fer Diad’s Ford. They threw their twenty-nine spears at him at once; i.e. Gaile-dana with his twenty-seven sons and his sister’s son, Glas Mac Delgna. When then they all stretched out their hands to their swords, Fiacha Mac Fir-Febe came after them out of the camp. He gave a leap from his chariot when he saw all their hands against Cú Chulainn, and he strikes off the arms of the twenty-nine of them.
Then Cú Chulainn said: ‘What you have done I deem help at the nick of time (?).’
‘This little,’ said Fiacha, ‘is a breach of compact for us Ulstermen. If any of them reaches the camp, we will go with our cantred under the point of the sword.’
‘I swear, etc., since I have emitted my breath,’ said Cú Chulainn, ‘not a man of them shall reach it alive.’
Cú Chulainn slew then the twenty-nine men and the two sons of Ficce with them, two bold warriors of Ulster who came to ply their might on the host. This is that deed on the Foray, when they went to the battle with Cú Chulainn.
