A fierce and powerful creature was the Black Boar. This huge beast played a massive role in shaping ancient Irish history. Famously the Black Boar killed, and was killed by Diarmuid the warrior while he answered the challenge of his arch-rival Fionn Mac Cumhaill on the mountain of Benbulben in County Sligo.
The Black Boar has come to represent resilience. Fitting then that The White Hag’s ever-growing Black Boar family, is represented by the name of one of ancient Ireland’s most notorious icons.
