About Achtan mac Olcca

Cormac's mother was Eachtach, daughter of Uilceathach the smith and "dowered mistress" of Art. "For it was a custom at that time ... that whenever a king or king's son coveted the daughter of a farmer or biadhtach ... [he] should get her, provided he gave her a marriage portion or dowry of cattle."
