Irish - A mortal loved by a goddess. Cliona, the goddess of love, fell in love with Ciabhan and they fled from Tir Tainigiri to Cork to escape Manannan. Her sisters, Aiofe and Etain, with Eolus and Lodan, eloped at the same time. When Ciabhan left her to go hunting, the sea-god caused a wave to carry the girls back to the Otherworld or, in some accounts, to drown the three girls and, some say, their lovers as well. At times, known as Ciabhan, Keevan or Keevan.
