Éraic

Ericfine (or "eric-fine") was the Irish equivalent of the Welsh galanas and the Anglo-Saxon and Scandic weregild, a form of tribute paid in reparation for murder or other major crimes. The term survived into the sixteenth century as "eiric", by then relating only to compensation for the killing of an Irishman.
