I removed Cuchulain and the alternative name Red Branch Knights. These relate to a separate, earlier cycle of myths.

The spelling of the names needs to be standardised to English or Irish if possible. e.g. Finn mac Cumhaill vs. Finn son of Cumhail vs. Finn McCool.

Hello. I have some questions: 1. Is Diarmait the same character as Diarmuid Ua Duibhne ? AFAIK, it was Diarmuid Ua Duibhne who ran off with Grainne. And Diarmuid was son of Caer by Aengus, and not of Danu (Don). 2. what are the seakings? I can't find this word in any dictionary

In Friendship, Critto

A web search on "Diarmid bound the sea kings" confirmed a hunch of mine that "seakings" ought to have been "sea-kings", the capture or binding of whom Diarmid (however you wish to spell it - I am Scots) accomplished at Fionn's behest. I have hyphenated the term where it appears in the article. (talk) 20:54, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

Werewolf reference[edit]

Hi all; I added the reference to the Werewolf tribe, since it's entirely possible someone might find this page looking for them, and they are heavily inspired by the original Fianna, which I think makes the reference both relevant and potenitally interesting. Of course, if there's a good reason it shouldn't be included, I'm happy for it to go; perhaps can provide one? -- Guybrush 09:04, 1 December 2005 (UTC)


Is the gym link at the bottom appropriate? Simply because a business shares a name with a Wikipedia topic, should it be linked as a source of more info?

FiannaGym - Mixed Martial Arts Gym based in Dublin, Ireland

I have removed all of the links, because notone of them is related in any way to irish litrature or History. They all seem to be American groups with no interest in history, only in there percived cultural heratige. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 10:18, 8 January 2007 (UTC).
