Irish - A warrior and satirist. Son of Curoi and Blathnat. He was a friend of Cuchulainn but swore vengeance when Cuchulainn killed his father and abducted his mother. He led Maev's army in an assault on Ulster and set a trap for Cuchulainn in which he threw the spear that mortally wounded the Ulster hero. When a crow settled on Cuchulainn's shoulder, he came in close to the crippled warrior, who had tied himself to a pillar, and cut off his head. As the sword dropped from Cuchulainn's hand it cut off Lugaid's hand. He was killed by Conall Cearnach who fought one-handed to equalise the contest. Some say that the killer of Cuchulainn was a son of Calatin. In some accounts, Cuchulainn gave Lugaid the princess Dearbhfhorgaill whom he had rescued but others say he gave her to Lugaid Riabhdhearg.
