Irish - Princes of Connaught. Sons of Ailill and Maev. Ailill and Maev had seven sons (Cairbre, Ceat, Daire, Eochaid, Feidhlim, Fergus and Sin) all of whom were known as Maine or, collectively, as Maini. As a group they were sent to seek supplies from the hostel-keeper, Reaghamhain. His seven daughters eloped with the Maini. One of them volunteered to challenge Cuchulainn at the ford and was killed. In another account, he was killed by Conall Cearnach to avenge the death of Cuchulainn. Also commonly known as Maini, Maine, Maine, Manes or Manes.
