A three headed Irish monster. Trechend means three-headed but Ellen is a peculiar word that no one has been able to translate. Some believe it to be a variation of Aillen making the Elen Trechend into the Aillen Trechenn, a three-headed monster that emerges from its cave at Cruachan in Roscommon every Halloween (Samhain). It devastated areas of Ireland until it was slain by the poet warrior Amairgen.

Some say that this beast was a three-headed vulture or a swarm of three-headed monsters.
