Irish Horsemen - History and Equipment
"It wasn’t until the arrival of the Galloglaich that pitched battles became more commonplace and the Hobilars began to become more heavily armed and against other native Irish armies the Hobilar could dismount and fight with the infantry, bolstering the fighting quality of the traditionally unarmoured Gaelic warrior in a pitched battle."
Cú Chulainn (Mythology)
Cu Chulainn was a hero from Ulster. He was the son of the god, Lugh, and his childhood name was Setanta. In a way, he is like a viking, or even the Incredible Hulk, because he is taken by fits of extreme rage, which gives to his success in war. Cu Chulainn is killed by javelins made by the sons of Calidin. He hears battle cries and sees warriors that are really just illusions conjured up by the enemy. After being hit, he tied himself to a pillar so that he could stand upright to face his enemy
