DALAGNI MAQI DALI

Translation

'of Dallán son of Dall'

Commentary

The fact that the endings (-AGNI, -I) are in tact in both personal names would suggest a possible pre 6th-century date (McManus 1991, 97).

Dall 'blind' and diminutive suffix -agni (>-an(n), Dallán), cp. 230. Cloghanecarhane, Kerry D[...]A[.C.] AVI DALAGNI [MAQI C ...]) in an unidentified gentilic name (McManus 1991, 112).

McManus (1991, p 112) notes this inscription as an example of the repetition of an element of the father's name in the son's.
