Conall the Victorious was a comrade in arms of Cúchulainn, and a member of the Red Branch of Ulster who served under King Conchobar Mac Nessa at the site of Emain Macha (Navan Fort).  Conall had made a covenant with Cúchulainn that whichever of them was first killed would be avenged by the other.  It turned out that Cúchulainn was killed first on the Plain of Muirthemne by Lugaid Mac Cúroi and it therefore fell to Conall to avenge his death.
