Conchobar Mac Nessa was the King of Ulaid (now known as Ulster) and had his seat at Emain Macha in Co. Armagh. He ruled over the Ultonians and had a large army under which the legendary hero Cúchulainn served. Fergus Mac Roich a great warrior also served under Conchobar until they had a falling out and he went down to Connaught and hired himself out into the service of Queen Medb.
The men of Ulster were put under a curse by the Goddess Macha generations ago and now each year they were forced to suffer the pains of childbirth at a certain time which incapacitated them so that they could not do anything other than lie in their beds in agony.
