Bhí clann amháin in Inis Eoghain agus ceann eile ag Domhnach Pádraig i nGaillimh. Deineadh Lavelle den dream deireannach sa, ag iarraidh a sinsearthacht Ghaelach a cheilt. Bíonn Melville orthu, uaireannta. Fréamh: de réir an Duinnínigh, ciallaíonn "fabhal" bogadh, casadh, turas. Fear mór taistil, b'fhéidir! MIF.
