The Great Tribal Assembly at Carman

The Feis

'There they discussed and debated
the rights and taxes of the province:
every legal enactment rightly piously,
every third year it was settled.'

from The Poem of Carman
(11th Century)

Every third year roads must be cleared of branches, weeds and water to prepare for the great assembly.

Sounds like some street departments I've know. Oh, wait.... that's cleared of orange cones every third year........

Compassion is the sometimes fatal capacity for feeling what it is like inside somebody else's skin. It is the knowledge that there can never really be any peace and joy for me until there is peace and joy finally for you too.
- Frederick Buechner



If society prospers at the expense of the intangibles,
how can it be called progress?

The harpist is the only musician who is of noble standing. Flute players, trumpeters, and timpanists, as well as jugglers, conjurers and equestrians who stand on the backs of horses at fairs, have no status of their own in the community, only that noble chieftain to whom they are attached.

The creditor who holds your brooch, your necklet or your earrings as a pledge against your loan must return them so you may wear them at great assembly.
Or he will be fined for your humiliation.

Speech is given to three: to the historian-poet for the narration and relating of tales, to the poet-seer for praise and satire, and to the Brehon for giving judgement.

The time alloted to each Brehon for pleading his case is long or short according to his dignity.

In determining the length of the speech he is allowed, count eighteen breathings to the minute.

On the best land everything is good. The herbs are sweet and no manure or shells are needed. There will be no plants that will stick in a horse's mane or tail: no briars, no blackthorns, no burrdocks.

For the best arable land the price is twenty-four cows.
The price for dry, coarse land is twelve dry cows.
