OC&M s.n. Conchobar lists that spelling as both the Early Irish and a 
valid Modern Irish spelling and dates it to 882.

"In Germany, they came first for the Communists, and I didn't speak up 
because I wasn't a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't 
speak up because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the Catholics, and I 
didn't speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and 
by that time no one was left to speak up." -- Martin Niemoller

"To announce that we are to stand by the president right or wrong is not 
only unpatriotic and servile, but it's morally treasonable to the 
American public.  Nothing but the truth should be spoken about him or 
any one else.  But it is even more important to tell the truth, pleasant 
or unpleasant, about him than about any one else." -- Theodore Roosevelt

"They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary 
safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." -- Benjamin Franklin
