Examples from the Web for naoise
There, lying on the couches, the chess-board of ivory and gold between them, were Naoise and Deirdrê.
And Naoise and Ainle played chess, with hands that did not tremble.
Days passed, and Deirdrê waited, very sure that Naoise must come to her at last.
Then said Naoise: “Although harm should come, for her dear sake I am willing to live in disgrace for the rest of my days.”
And Naoise made answer: “Either a dead man, or the mark of where a man has lain hidden thou wilt find under the bracken.”
