Cuchulainn, got his name “hound of Cullan,” after slaying Cullan’s guard dog in self defense. His first claim to fame was placing a geise on himself, to take the dog’s place until a replacement was found. He then became famous throughout Ulster as being wildly handsome. So handsome, in fact, the men thought he should be married so he would not seduce their wives. In an epic adventure to win the heart of his beloved, Cuchulainn fought and killed many men, but in the end shot himself in the foot. Read the full mythological epic below.
