Pigs...


According to legend, Manannan had a number of pigs that could be slaughtered and cooked one night, only to reappear in their pen the next day, restored to life and full health. When King Cormac visited Manannan's home, the pig wouldn't cook until a truth was spoken over each quarter of the poor beast. Just wait until PETA finds out about this! The eating of the pigs is also quoted by some tales as the secret of the Tuatha De Dannan's eternal youth.
