Quick Reference

Fenian hero, friend and attendant of Fionn mac Cumhaill, member of his Fianna, and a son of Dobar Ua Baíscne. Diorruing is credited with clairvoyance concerning both events happening concurrently at a distance and those that will occur in the future (i.e. second sight); he need only shut his eyes and look into the darkness at the back of his head. At the beginning of Tóraigheacht Dhiarmada agus Ghráinne [The Pursuit of Diarmait and Gráinne], Diorruing tells the aged, lonely Fionn of the one woman in Ireland most worthy of him, Gráinne.

Subjects: Religion.
