Conaire Mór was a legendary king who became high king at a young age because he was told to walk the roads of Ireland naked, as it had been foretold that the next high king would be found walking towards Tara naked.
His father was a Bird-God who impregnated his mother Mess Buachalla while she was confined in a calf-shed. Mess Buachalla later married Eterscele the High King of Ireland at that time and then gave birth to Conaire. Eterscele brought up the child as his own son.
Conaire was put under many geasa (sacred taboos) which he had to obey in order to remain alive. He eventually broke all the taboos and he met his final fate in Da Derga's Hostel.
