Case File: Finn vs. Diarmaid

Police Reports

Case Description: Finn charges Diarmaid with kidnapping Finn's bride-to-be, Grainne. Instead of persuading Grainne to marry Finn, Diarmaid took her as his wife and started a family with her.

Case Status: Dismissed. Finn got his revenge when Diarmaid, injured by a boar he was hunting, asked the war leader to heal his wound. Rather than use his healing waters to help, Finn let it flow away twice. By the time he went to get more water a third time, Diarmaid had died.
