    Tá sé seo ar cheann de na logainmneacha is sine fianaise sa chontae: féach 800c ‘i n Uib Forcellain’ in Féilire Aonghasa agus Genelach Hua Fairchelláin (Osraige) in CGH. Tá an rann seo a leanas le fáil i gcóip amháin de dhán Uí Uidhrín, díreach i ndiaidh na tagairte don ‘Choill aoibhinn Uachtoraigh’:

    taoiseach ar fonn na Feóire,
    don iath is cuing mur cathál,
    triath an fhuinn Ó hÚrachán
