Greeks have their two epic stories, The Iliad and The Odyssey, about the Siege of Troy. The Irish equivalent is "The Cattle Raid of Cooley" and takes place around the great Celtic Fortress of Emain Macha, outside Armagh. The Leeman farms of the Navan, Rosebrook and Creeverow are centred on Emain Macha. Creeverow is an Anglicized version of the Irish words for "Red Branch" and is the site where Setanta, the British slave boy, later known as Cu Chulainn, the Hound of Ulster, trained as a Red Branch Knight.
