Cid mesc lib coirm Inse Fáil
is mescu coirm Tíre Máir.

(although * intoxicating * with you * beer * of island * of Fál /
is * more intoxicating * beer * of land * great)

Although the beer of Ireland seems intoxicating to you,
the beer of the Great Land is more intoxicating still.

This half stanza is found in the poem “A Bé Find in raga lim”, which Midir recites to Étaín in “Tochmarc Étaíne” (LU 10846-7) describing the wonders of the Otherworld, here called the “Great Land”.
