Grania

Irish - The beloved of Finn mac Cool. Daughter of Cormac mac Airt. Sister of Cairbre. Mother of Eachtach, some say. At the wedding feast when she was to be married to Finn mac Cool, she drugged the guests and eloped with Dermot rather than marry the aging Finn. Finn and his Fianna pursued them for sixteen years and then Angus Og persuaded Finn to forgive the young couple. She bore four sons and a daughter to Dermot. After the death of Dermot, which Finn could have averted but refused, she trained her sons to kill Finn but in the end she married him. Sometimes called Grania, Grainne, Grainne, Greine, Greine, Grianna or Grianna.
