Acein

Irish - The black horse of the Dagda. In some accounts, Acein was a poor specimen of a cow. When the Dagda was displaced by Angus Og he was employed by Bres to dig ditches and build a castle. All he asked in payment was this cow, which Bres was quite happy to part with. When the Dagda led his prize away, the rest of Bres' herd followed. Also commonly identified as Acein, Ocean, Ocean or Oceanus.
