Cormac mac Dubhthach

Irish - Son of Dubhthach. He was sent with his father and Fergus to escort Naisi and Deirdre back from Scotland, whence they had eloped. When Conor mac Nessa broke his promise of safe conduct and had Naisi and his brothers killed, the three of them attacked Emain Macha and killed 300 of the garrison. They then joined forces with Queen Maev of Connaught and fought on her side in the Cattle Raid of Cooley. Occasionally referred to as Cormac mac Dubhthach.
