Cliona

Irish - Daughter of Gebann. Sister of Aoife and Etain. Sister of Aoibheall, some say. She fell in love with Ciabhan and they fled from Tir Tairnigiri to Cork to escape Manannan. Her sisters Aoife and Etain eloped with Eolus and Lodan at the same time. When Ciabhan left her to go hunting, the sea-god sent a huge wave that carried the girls back to the Otherworld or, in some versions, drowned not only the girls but their lovers as well. In another version she fell in love with Angus Og, but was drowned en route to see him by the treachery of her companion in the boat. Some say that both she and her sister were in love with the same man, the chieftain O Caoimh, and she turned Aiobheall into a cat. She then married the chieftain, who later abandoned her when he found out what she had done. She carried off Sean mac Semais at his engagement party, but when Caitlin Og demanded a dowry she released him.
