Finn Macool

Irish giant, Finn Macool accepted the challenge for a bout given by Scotland's giant Benandonner without fear. Finn Macool constructed a causeway across the North channel to act as a meeting point. On seeing Benandonner he realised his grave mistake as Benandonner was much bigger than he had thought. Hence, Finn Macool decided to hide.
Finn Macool sought his wife's advice on this. And his clever wife Oonagh disguised him as a baby and placed him in a cradle. When Benandonner came looking for him he was frightened on seeing the baby. He thought if the baby is so huge how huge the father would be? Fearing for his life Benandonner ran away destroying the causeway behind him so that Finn Macool could not follow him. To act as a testimony Benandonner's concrete foot can be seen still lying at the seashore.
