de Bhaldraithe (Tomás): Varia: V. 1. *bruinne, ‘a fine’.
In Ériu 44 (1993), p. 185.
vs. W. Stokes's gloss ‘bruinne 92 a fine = P. S. Dinneen's bruinne .i. breathamhnas' (Egerton 158 Glossary, ACL 3 (1907), 145-214). Mistake traceable to (a) R. Kirk's 1690 glossary, where bruinne ‘fine’ [= ‘refine’] (recte bruinn), and (b) P. S. Dinneen, who, following Peadair Ó Conaill's Irish dictionary (c. 1826), erroneously equated bruinne with breathamhnas ‘judgement’.
