Seanchan Torpest

Irish - A chief poet. Husband of Brighid. He was said to have killed ten rats merely by reciting a couplet and was once carried off by the king-cat Irusan for composing a satire. At the court of Guaire, king of Connaught, he was challenged to recite the story of the Cattle Raid of Cooley. He knew this story because he had raised the dead king, Fergus mac Roth, and learned the whole story from him before allowing him to return to his grave. Occasionally called Seanchan Torpest, Seanchan Torpeist, Seanchan Torpeist, Senchan, Senchan or Seanchan.
