The match to Ehine (Tochmarc Etaine) (approx. 1100)
Under this name were preserved three saga known under the Book of Buro Cows and the Yellow Book of Lekan (XIV century.).
I. In the past, Ireland was governed by a king of the tribe of the Goddess Tribe named Ehoide Ollotar (Eoheide "Father of All"). He was also called Dagdah, for he was able to create miracles and possess power over the harvest. Wishing to be intimately connected with the wife of Elkmar, the ruler of the Brig, Dagda joined her when her husband went to visit. Dhedra scattered the night darkness, making the path so long that nine months passed as if one day, and before Elkmar's return, the woman gave birth to a son named Angus.
Dagda took the boy to his education in the Midir's house. Angus surpassed all the boys with a charming look and agility in the games. He was also called McOak ("The Young"), for his mother said that truly young was the one who was conceived at dawn and was born before sunset. Angus thought that Midira was a son and did not suspect of kinship with Dagda. But once they called him a stepchild, who did not know the father and mother, and he came to Mydir in tears. Then Midir led the young man to Eohaid, so that he recognized his son as his father. Eochaid taught him how to take possession of Elkmar, and Mac Oak became ruler of Brug.
A year later, Mydir visited his pupil. Young men played on the pitch. Suddenly, a dispute broke out between them, and one of them accidentally stroke Midori's eye with a rod from the actor, but at the request of Angus he healed the god-doctor Diane Kecht.
Then Midir wanted to intimacy with the most beautiful girl in Ireland, this was Etine Ehrade, the daughter of the ruler of the northeastern kingdom. Mack Oak came to him and offered a ransom for the bride. The king demanded that the twelve valleys be cleared of the forest - and this was accomplished at Dagda's will in one night. Then he ordered the king to take twelve rivers into the sea - and by the will of Dagda, rivers appeared in one night, about which no one had ever heard. Then the king said that for the good of the earth was made enough and he wants to get his share - so much gold and silver, how much the girl she weighs. This was done, and Mack Oke led Wayne. Midir was very pleased with his adopted son.
A year passed, and Mydir began to get home, where his wife was expecting. Mack Oak warned the named father that the great power and cunning of the insidious woman - the Fuhamnah, known in the secret knowledge of the Tribes of the Goddess Dana. When Mydir brought her royal daughter, Fuamnach met them with both tender words and invited them to their rooms. Eightine sat on the bed, and Fuamnay struck her with a rod of red rowan, turning it into a large puddle. The heat from the foci stole the water, and then a worm crawled from there, which then became a red fly. It was not better than this fly in the world, and her voice was sweeter than the songs of bagpipes and horns. Any disease was healed by the drops flowing from its wings, thirst and hunger disappeared from anyone who saw her radiance and felt the aroma. When Madir walked around his possessions, his fly accompanied him everywhere and guarded from evil intentions. Then Fuamann raised the mighty wind that had taken Ethane.
Seven years ago he did not know the fly of rest - completely destitute, she hid on the breast of Mac Oka. Mack Oak dressed her in a purple robe, settled in a glassy sunny rest, and began to look after her until she found her former beauty. Having learned of the love of Mac Oka to Eathine, the foammans again sent a whirlwind, which brought the fly to the house where feathers people. Ethin fell into the golden bowl facing the wife of Ehara, and the woman swallowed her with drink. This was the second time that Ehine was conceived.
She's called the daughter of the ether, after her first conception, a thousand and twelve years passed. And Fuamann fell from the hand of Mac Oka, for he did not forgive the disappearance of the flies.
II. The rules of the then Echoide Air was then Ireland, and all the five kingdoms of the country obeyed him. But EoHayd was not his wife, so the Irishs did not want to go to him for a celebration. Ehoide ordered to find the most beautiful girl to whom the man had not yet touched, and found him such - Ehine, daughter of Ehara. Brother EoHayd Aylil sparked passion for her and, without daring to admit anyone, fell ill from longing. He was at death when Ehoide decided to run his possessions.
The king left his wife at the dying brother to trace her for the proper execution of the funeral rites. Wayne came to Ailly every day, and it became easier. Soon she realized that the cause of his illness was love. Promised Stephen to heal Aillya, but, not wanting to disgrace the king in his house, he appointed a date on the hill.
There came a man in all resemblance to Ailil, and Ehine comforted him. In the morning, Ailil began to worry that she had fallen asleep, and Etien again invited him to the hill. This was repeated three times : Ailly tried vainly to fight with sleep, and Ehine consoled the one who looked like him. Finally, she demanded explanations, and the stranger said that his name was Midir - he was her husband, when she was called Ethin Ehreyd, but they had to part because of the enchantment of the Faunums. Ehine replied that he would leave with him if Eoheyd's consent was obtained. When she returned to the royal chambers, Ailil told her that she was completely healed of both illness and love. But Ehoide rejoiced, finding the brother alive and healthy.
III. On a clear summer day, Ehoide Airy climbed onto the walls of Tara. Suddenly a strange warrior with golden hair and blue eyes appeared in front of him, in a purple cloak, with a five-pointed spear and a precious shield. The warrior said that his name is Midir and he came to experience the king in a game in the fiddhel. Midir got a pure silver board with golden figures - a precious stone shone in every corner. The mortgage set out the fifty miraculous horses, and EoHaid won them.
The next day, Midir set fifty horses, fifty swords with a golden handle and fifty red-haired cows. Ehoide also won this establishment. Then Mydir offered to play what each of them would like. Ehoide agreed, but that day, Mydir won and said he wanted to kiss Ehine. Eohaid gathered in the palace of the best warriors and brave men - they encircled the king from Ethin when Midir appeared. The one hugged Wayne and carried it with him through the hole in the roof, and then everyone saw in the sky two over the Tara of two swans.
By the order of the king, the Irish began to crush the magical hills, but the settlers who lived there said that they had not abducted Eohaid's wife - to bring her back, they needed to throw out blind puppies and kittens every day. The echoid did the same: Midir was angry, but he could not do anything, and promised to return to Wayne. They brought fifty women to the king, faces and clothes similar to Ehine. Eochaid was a long time among them, and at last it seemed to him that he knew his wife. The Irish rejoiced, however, Midir said that this is his daughter from Ehine. So Ehoide had forever lost his wife, and was then killed by Sigmalom, the grandson of Midr.
