Bennacht dé ocus ainde fort!

Bennacht dé ocus ainde fort!

(blessing * of gods * and * un-gods * on you)

The blessings of the gods and the non-gods upon you!

Spoken by Cú Chulainn to the Morrígan in the LU version of "Táin Bó Cúailgne". He did not recognize his adversary when he gave the blessing, she being disguised as an old woman milking a cow. The word "bennacht", earlier spelled "bendacht", comes from Latin "benedictum".
