[Ir., dog-headed].

The monstrous, man-killing wife of Morgán and mother of the lovely Delbcháem in Echtrae Airt meic Cuinn [The Adventure of Art Son of Conn]. She correctly fears that she will die if ever her daughter is wooed, and so she decapitates each suitor who comes to her daughter's door and decorates the bronze fence in front of her fortress with their heads. Art kills her and puts her on a spike. She sometimes has the agnomen Cennfhata.

Subjects: Religion.
