From the mythology of Ireland, these were the original inhabitants of the island. When the Firbolgs invaded, these creatures were transformed into grotesque monsters. The Firbolgs themselves were defeated by Tuatha De Danann, the Irish hero. They come from tales told in the Cath Maige Turied and the Lebor Gabala. These creatures had the body of a human but the head of either a horse or goat. They had only one eye, one arm and one leg. Anyone who entered their territory had to pay a fine. Those who did not had their nose sliced off. After the introduction of Christianity these beings were seen as Demons. Later they became known as weather and crop spirits.
