Irish God

A blacksmith with a watchdog

The watchdog was unleashed and poor beleaguered Sétanta was forced to kill the savage beast in self-defense.

Culann was not happy with this, but Sétanta was so keen to make amends that he offered himself as a temporary stand-in watchdog.

From that day forth he became known as The Hound of CullanCúchulainn.
