Case File: Maeve & Ailill vs. the People of Ulster #1: The Bull

Police Reports

Case Description: Complainants (People of Ulster) accuse the defendants (Queen Maeve and King Ailill) of the attempted theft of, and subsequent battle over, the Brown Bull of Cooley.

Case Status: Case dismissed. Despite Cúchulainn's attempts to ward off Maeve's troop, the brown bull was successfully captured and removed from Ulster. A few months later, the brown bull fought with Ailill's white bull and neither survived the fight. No bulls, no problem.
