Quicken Trees Hostel

Irish - A hostel built by Midac. This enchanted building, sometimes referred to as a palace, was built by Midac who still nursed resentment against Finn mac Cool for the death of his father and he trapped Finn and a party of the Fianna who found themselves stuck to the floor. Midac had brought in a large force of Norsemen, under Sinsar, to help him in his fight with the Fianna but, when they tried to cross the ford to reach the hostel, a battle ensued in which all the attacking forces were killed. The quicken tree (the rowan) was regarded as the tree of immortality. Also referred to as Quicken Trees Hostel, Bruighean Caorthuin, Bruighean Caorthuin, The Fairy Palace of the Quicken Trees, Hostel of the Quicken Trees, Hostel of the Quicken Trees, Rowan Tree Hostel, Rowan Tree Hostel, Battle of Fionn's Strand, Battle of Fionn's Strand, Battle of Ventry, Conmhaol, Conus, Daire Donn or Cath Fionntra(ga).
