A female monster whose name means ‘Dog-Headed’. She had the body of a woman with the head of a dog. She had a daughter which she guarded well as there was a prophecy that when someone was able to successfully woo her daughter, Coinchenn would be killed. Surrounding her house were spiked bronze railings that, through time had many heads and skulls impaled on of past suitors. One hero named Art invaded the house and killed the dog-headed woman and placed her head on the spikes instead.
