'of Fíadbarr son of ? descendant of Odr...?'


The personal name appears to be a compound with the element barr 'top, head (chief?), hair of the head', commonly ocurring in ogham inscriptions (McManus 1991, 102-3) and the element fíad 'wild' (Ziegler 1994, 242, 118; eDIL s.v. 2 fíad), applied to wild animals in particular and with barr 'antlers?' here possibly referring to a stag. Unfortunately, the kin group name doesn't survive in tact but perhaps refers to the Odraige (McManus 1991, 111).
