Eibhliu

Irish - Wife of Mairidh. Mother of Eochaid mac Maireadha. She eloped with her son, Eochaid, on a horse provided by Angus Og. Where the horse stopped to urinate, a spring appeared and here they built a house. This spring later flooded the area and Eochaid and his family, except his daughter Li Ban, were drowned. In some accounts, Midir, not Angus Og, provided the horse on which they eloped. Occasionally referred to as Eibhliu, Ecca or Ecca.
