“Eithne – daughter of (Evil Eye) Balor and maternal grandmother of Fionn Mac Cumhaill, Eithne was imprisoned in a glass tower on Tory Island because of a prophecy that a child of hers would grow to defeat Balor in battle. Despite Eithne’s imprisonment the prophecy was fulfilled.” This Eithne is in the foyer of the “house” (tower block) that bears her name: Teach Eithne in the New Lodge.
