Connacht

The winds off of the Atlantic can be fierce but the people are even more so. Many poets have been moved by these lands, to the point of making history.One of the Five Provinces of Eire.
Connacht is the home to Queen Medb, who figures prominently in much of Irish pre-history and folklore. Connacht was frequently at odds with the province of Ulster, over one thing or another. The greatest battle between the two pits the hero CuChullain against the entire force of Connacht. The cause of the battle? Medb coveted the Brown Bull of Cooley. Her greed led to one of the great epics, The Cattle Raid of Cooley.
