In Irish mythology, Cermait (modern spelling: Cearmaid or "Kermit") of the Tuatha Dé Danann was a son of the Dagda. He was known by the epithet Milbél (honey-mouth. See also Ogma). He was killed by Lugh after he had an affair with Lug's wife Buach. The Dagda cried tears of blood for his son, and later, while traveling with his son's body in the east revived Cermait with a healing staff. Cermait's three sons, Mac Cuill, Mac Cecht and Mac Gréine, avenged his death, and went on to become joint High Kings of Ireland. Another figure mentioned in the Dindsenchas, Conan Honey-mouth, is described as the son of the Dagda and may be the same figure as Cermait. Conan was killed with a spear by a son of Conall Cernach named Ferdoman (also known as Aed Rind).
