Anera mac Conglinne

At Cathal's castle, Anera chained the king to the wall and tempted the Hunger- Beast, which was the cause of the king's insatiable appetite, with tasty morsels until, finally, it left the king's stomach and was banished. In some accounts, Anera is referred to as Conor. Sometimes referred to as Anera mac Conglinne, Conor, Conor or Anera.
