Dirsan lemm!

Dirsan lemm!

(calamitous * with me)

Woe is me!

Congal exclaims "Dursan leam!" to express his utter embarassment after having been gravely wounded not by a famous warrior but by the halfwit Cúanna in "Cath Muighe Rath" (FDG, p. 286). Variations on "Dirsan duit" (It's your misfortune!) are found throughout Early Irish literature.
