I had a long explanation for this but it just seemed to take from it. It's driven by two sites really - the bull-horned boulder at Tinneel, near the old centre of Ros Alithir and the three quartz stones at Maulatanvally, at the centre of it all. More on that later, maybe...

Where is Eochaidh? A roar through the rushes
as sucking punches follow hooves. Thunder.
A rotting shape under May-shroud bushes
that squirms with a stinking Genesis. Worm.
Eochaidh Bán, does sweat grip your tongue?
Does salt mist form a husk on Meall an tsean baile?
Here’s where you lie under protruding teeth,
an unforgiving weight. What have I done?

(Oh, I probably should have said that Eochaidh, or the many parts of him, is Eochaidh Ollathair, or the Dagda.)
