Cumaill

Irish - A giant. Chief of the Clan Bascna. Son of Trenmor. Brother of Bodhmhall and Crimnall. Husband of Murna. Father of Finn mac Cool.

Murna bore his son Demna, later known as Finn. Some say he was killed in the Battle of Knock with the Clan Morna by Goll mac Morna, while others say that he was killed by his servant, Arca Dubh, using Cumaill's own sword to kill him while he slept or using a spear to kill him while he was swimming.
