Tuathal Maolgharbh

Irish - A high-king of Ireland. He took the throne after a dispute with his cousin, Diarmaid mac Cearbhaill. When a druid prophesied that Diarmaid would succeed to the throne, Maol Mor, one of Diarmaid's warriors, came to Tara with what he said was Diarmaid's heart on his spear. As Tuathal inspected the heart, Maol plunged the spear into the king, killing him. On occassion, called Tuathal Maolgharbh.
