Summary - Prophecy.

There is some conversation about making a 'frìth' and 'reading bird formation'.

Coinneach Odhar was once telling the queen everything that the king was doing while he was away from home. When he told her that the king was with another woman, the queen ordered that Coinneach Odhar be burnt to death. He prophecied that a raven and a dove would come to his ashes and that the dove would take some but that the raven would not. This happened. He prophecied that a day would come when there would only be greylag geese in Baleshare. He also prophecied that the Balranald farm family would cease at the thirteenth generation.
