    Táin Bó Cúailnge, "The driving-off of cows of Cooley", commonly known as The Cattle Raid of Cooley or The Táin, is a legendary tale from early Irish literature.Traditionally set in the 1st century AD in an essentially pre-Christian heroic age, the Táin is the central text of a group of tales known as the Ulster Cycle. The Táin involves the story of Queen Medb of Connacht and her husband Ailill, who plot to steal the sacred stud bull Donn Cuailnge from Ulster. Queen Medb manages to bring Donn Cuailnge back to Connacht, where the bull fights the Connacht bull Finnbhennach. Donn Cuailnge kills Finnbhennach, but is mortally wounded, and wanders around Ireland before finally returning home to Ulster to die of exhaustion.

    Did you know that bull fights like the one described in the Táin Bó Cúailnge are an ancient Serbian tradition, and are organized in Bosnia every year?

    Also did you know that both Serbian and Irish have the same old words for pen*is which all come from the same root "bo(d)" "bu(d)" which means to stab, to stick something pointy into something else, which has been preserved in Serbian?
