UI's Celtic Mythology - Cumal

Cumal (whose name means "sky") was the father of the Fenian hero Finn Mac Cumal, more commonly known as Finn MacCool, who was born after his father's death. Cumal was also a renowned leader of the Fianna and chief of the Clan Bascna. He was killed by Jadhg, a druid, who had been enraged when Cumal eloped with his daughter.

So that's the story of Cumal. He's not the most interesting character you'll find in Celtic mythology I grant you. Still, he's more entertaining than Big Brother's Kemal. (shudder)
