Oh King Tuis, we conceal not thy fame,
We praise thee as the oak above the kings;–
The skin of a pig, bounty without hardness,
This is the reward which I ask for it.
The war of a neighbor against an Ear,–
The fair Ear of his neighbor will be against him;
He who gives us his property,
His court shall not be the scarcer of it.

He owns a magical spear Gae,Gai Assail and seven magical pipes. Torc’s children are seven swine that are killed and regenerate every day.

Brían was refused, stole the skin, murdered some noblemen on his way out of the palace and fought a duel with the King. The King died. The other story was that he gave seven pigs willingly to the Sons of Tuireann and did not die. (76, 80, 97, 102, 160, 189)
