Morc was a great Fomorian king and captain of a fleet of ships.  They travelled from Northern Africa until they reached the Northern Islands of Ireland and Scotland and here they settled.  They were sea-farers and had many ships.  Some say they settled in a place called Lochlann 'Full of lakes' now called Norway.

After the Fomorian king Conaing had been killed by the sons of Nemed, Morc called on reinforcements to come from Africa and attack the Nemedians who retreated from Ireland, leaving only very few of their people behind.
