Trí fuchachta nad increnat slabrai: a gabáil ar écin, a sleith tri mescai, a turtugud do ríg. Three cohabitations1 that do not pay a marriage-portion: taking her by force, outraging her without her knowledge through drunkenness, her being violated by a king.

1 ‘fuchacht’ or ‘fuichecht’, usually means ‘cuckoldry’, a meaning which does not seem to suit here.
