UI's Celtic Mythology - Niamh

Niamh was the wife of Conall Caernach. While Cuchulainn was recovering from wounds sustained during the war against the men of Connacht, Niamh nursed him and became his mistress. She then tried to prevent him returning to battle. But the witch Badb, one of the daughters of Calatin, cast a spell on Niamh so that she wandered away into the countryside. Badb then assumed the form of Niamh and told Cuchulainn that he must return to the war and fight.
