Then Caoilte Mac Ronan and Conan Maol lamented the death of the great Fenian, and together they lifted and carried him to where Fionn stood. There amid the tumult of battle Fionn gave a great cry of anguish and raised the Diord Fionn the cry of the Fianna.

While shee-eire.com is a fascinating site, I'm not sure their historical and linguistic research is so accurate that I would rely on it for proof.

"Diord" is not a word

Dórd Fiann is an actual, attested name of a droning, mantra-like chant attributed to the Fianna.

Is this just a chant or are there any words in it
although u do get 3 pages of replies on google compared to 5 single replies for Diord Fionn
