Feardhomhain

Irish - A warrior of Leinster. Brother of Fingheal or Finnine. He was said to have killed a monster living in a lake and, when Finn mac Cool told him of a dangerous wild boar, he hunted it down and killed it after it had killed his three hounds. In this story, his sister was called Fingheal. Another story says that his sister was Finnine and, when she was badly treated by her husband, Conan mac an Leith Luchra, Feardhomhain killed him but was himself killed in the fight. Occasionally referred to as Feardhomhain.
