A lethal fish that dwelled in the coastal region of Croagh Patrick according to Celtic myth. This creature would unload the poisonous contents of its stomach into the water which killed all the fish in the area. It also released fumes from its mouth that floated towards the sky killing the birds that breathed it in. Anyone drinking from this water that had been polluted would fall heavily ill.
