Have been reading "Early Irish Myths and Sagas" and noted in the first passage of "The Wasting Sickness of CĂș Chulaind & The Only Jealousy of Emer" the reference to the thirds of Samuin. Gathering and celebration three days before, the day of, and three days after.

Is anyone able to direct me to other texts which support this reference to the thirds of Samhuin?
