Ach achon ach am toirsech monuar!

Ach achon ach am toirsech monuar!

oh * alas * oh * I am * tired * alas

Alas, I'm weary, alas, alas.

This is a marginal note by Murchadh Ó Cuindlis, the scribe of the Leabhar Breac, at the bottom of page 86. The words "ach achon" are often spelled "och ochón" in other, and later, texts. The formal structure of this personal comment, which has the feel of a cliché, contrasts with the scribe's comment at the bottom of page 58, which is more colloquial in style:

Isam toirsech indiú eter chend is choiss. (I am weary both head and foot.)
