Irish - Son of Noah, some say. Husband of Birren. Father of Cessair. He was not allowed a place in his father's Ark and his daughter advised him to make an idol. The idol told him to build a ship of his own to escape the coming flood. He did so and embarked with fifty women and two other men (Fintan and Ladra), sailing for seven years, finally landing in Ireland as the first settlers. He, like most of the party, men only Fintan survived. Sometimes called Bith.
