Bricriú's Pen

An Occasional Derry Anarchist Newsletter

Bricriú Mac Carbad, also known as 'Bricriú the troublemaker' or 'Bricriú of the poisonous tongue' was a mythological character from the Tain, who regularly set the great and the good of the Gaelic aristocracy against one another. He is said to have annoyed a king so much on one occasion with his satire, that the king threw a chess-piece at him and fractured his skull.
