Arca Dubh

Irish - A servant of Cumaill. There are several versions of the death of Cumaill. In one he was killed in battle by Goll mac Morna. Others say he was killed by Arca Dubh using Cumaill's own sword while he was sleeping or with a spear when he was swimming. In some stories, Cumaill's son Finn mac Cool later slew Arcan Dubh, so avenging his father's death. Occasionally called Arca Dubh, Black Arcan, Black Arcan, Black Arky or Black Arky.
