CUNALEGEA MAQI C[....]SALAR CELI AVI QVECI

Translation

'of Conlang? son of C. follower of the descendant of Q.'

Commentary

The personal name CUNALEGEA contains the commonly occuring element CUNA- 'dog, hound' (McManus 1991, 102).

A rare example from Ireland of the Latin convention of writing QV for Q in Irish names in the Latin alphabet: QVECI = QECI? cp. MAQVI for MAQI (McManus 1991, 126)

This is the only known example of the sequence X MAQQI Y CELI AVI Z (McManus 1991, 171 n17)
