The myth l.jpg
The Myth

The Morrigan appears several times to the warrior Cu Chulainn, and each time he rejects her offers of love and assistance in battle. When she appears as a hag milking a cow, he begs a drink from her. As he drinks, he blesses the milk and heals the wounds he had previously inflicted upon her. When she reveals herself to him, he regrets healing her. The next appearance she makes is in the form of a crow. She settles on the shoulders of the mortally wounded Cu Chulainn who has tied himself upright against a boulder with his own entrails.
