Ní·fríth ní·fuigébthar brithem bas fíriu cathroí.

Ní·fríth ní·fuigébthar brithem bas fíriu cathroí.

(not was found * not will be found * judge * that might be * more true * (than) battle-field)

A truer judge than the battle field has never been found, and never will be.

This maxim is found in Fergus Kelly's edition of "Audacht Morainn" (p. 64) and in Rudolf Thurneysen's earlier edition in ZCP 11 (p. 83). It is also quoted by Lughaidh Ó Cléirgh in “Beatha Aodha Ruaidh Uí Dhomhnaill” as “Ni frith ni fuighbhither breithemh bus firiu cathraé.”
