Lucet Maol

Irish - A druid. He was one of those who foresaw the coming of Christianity which, he believed, would destroy the power of the druids. He tried, unsuccessfully, to poison St Patrick when he came to the court of the high-king, Laoghaire, but was burnt to death in a contest of magic with the saint. In some lore, occasionally called Lucet Maol, Lochru, Lochru, Lucat Moel, Lucat Moel, Lucet Mael or Lucet Mael.
