Not sure if this is Icelandic or Faroese.
Can someone tell me?

Thanks!

"Grátum ikki frændi mín, vær goymum væl i minni!"
 
Spjótið gleið í miðju inn, stál í indrum lendi,
Brestir gjørdi eitt avreksbragd, hann banasár sær kendi.

Doesn't look like Faroese to me ^_^
It's definitely Icelandic.

Definitely Faroese. Telltale signs are the lack of Þ, the use of ø instead of ö, the digraph oy which does not occur in Icelandic, as well as the use of ikki; Icelandic uses ekki. (Danish and Norwegian both use ikke whilst Swedish uses inte)

As a native Icelander, I think I'd know.
