Description

As the legend goes, Queen Méabh became engulfed in a fit of jealous rage at her husband's most prized possession, an enormous white-horned bull.

Upon hearing there was an equally huge and fierce bull in Ulster, Méabh marched her army to the northern tip of Ireland and captured it.

On returning, Méabh placed her bull in a field next to the white-horned bull. Thinking its territory was being threatened, the white-horned bull immediately charged. For days, the bulls did battle across the entire island of Ireland. Finally, Méabh's bull was victorious, proving it to be the mightiest in the land.
