UI's Celtic Mythology - Forbai

Forbai was the son of the Ulster king Conchobar Mac Nessa. According to one myth, Queen Medb of Connacht fell back before the fury of the Ulster warriors after her invasion of the kingdom. In Galway, however, Forbai caught up with her as she was bathing in the lake. A shot from his sling fatally strick the old warrior-queen in the centre of her forehead.

Hmm. Not bad for a guy who shares his name with one of these!
