Forgall Manach

Irish - Lord of Lusca. A chieftain, known as 'the Wily'. Father of Emer and Fiall. He refused to let his daughter Emer marry Cuchulainn until he had trained as a warrior. When this was done, Forgall went back on his promise and still refused and was killed by Cuchulainn. In another version, he was still alive at the time of Cuchulainn's last battle and begged him not to go. At times, referred to as Forgall Manach, Fogall, Fogall, Forgall, Forgel or Forgel.
