Irish - A son of the Dagda, in some accounts. He was killed by Lugh when he attempted to seduce Lugh's wife. His father put his body in a boat and set off to find some means of restoring him to life. He met three men who had a magic club and borrowed it. He killed all three with one end of the club and restored his son to life with the other. In some versions the three sons of Cearmaid avenged their father by killing Lugh. Occasionally referred to as Cearmaid.
