Gruibhne

Irish - A warrior of Munster. He was one of the three captives ransomed by Conall Corc and then went to Scotland. When Conall was sent to Scotland by the king of Munster who believed that Conall had tried to seduce his wife, the king sent the Pictish king a coded message asking him to kill Conall. Gruibhne was able to repay Conall by changing the message with the result that the Fearadhach, the king of the Picts, welcomed Conall and allowed him to marry his daughter. Sometimes called Gruibhne.
