Cú Chulainn is believed to be an incarnation of the god #Lugh, who is also his father! His mother is the mortal Deichtine, sister of Conchobar mac Nessa, the King of #Ulster who ruled from #NavanFort near #Armagh. #CúChulainn #Irishmyths #Irishlegends #FolkloreThursday Born Sétanta, Cú Chulainn gained his name as a child, after killing Culann's fierce guard-dog in self-defence & offered to take its place until a replacement could be reared! Used a standing stone or by driving a sliotar down its throat with his hurley! #FolkloreThursday
