Commentary

The personal name is a compound with the element barr 'top, head (chief?), hair of the head', commonly ocurring in ogham inscriptions (McManus 1991, 102-3) and perhaps fid 'tree'. Unfortunately, the kin group name doesn't survive in tact but perhaps refers to the Odraige (McManus 1991, 111).
