An Ogre from Ireland who protected the hills of Lochlainn. He rarely fought as he used his beckoning voice to defeat his foes. The echoing sound that he made was so powerful that it penetrated and destroyed anything that heard it. He had three sons called Aed, Conn and Corc. According to the epic tale ‘Oidheadh Chlainne Tuireann’ a man called Lug Lamfhota ordered three sons form Tuirenn that he hated to “take three shouts” from the Ogre. The sons went and as expected by their father, they all died.
