Crimthann mac Fidaig

Crimthann mac Fidaig roi légendaire de Munster et Ard ri Érenn du IVe siècle.

Crimthann mac Fidaig dont le nom est repris sous la forme de « Crimthand » dans le Baile Chuind Chétchathaig était le fils de Fidach mac Dáire (Dáre Cerbba: Rawlinson B 502) ou Láre Fidach (Laud 610) roi Eóganachta de Munster. Selon les récits médiévaux irlandais il aurait réalisé des conquêtes en Bretagne et en Gaule.

Crimthann aurait épousé Fidheang une fille du roi de Connacht et serait mort empoisonné par sa sœur Mongfhinn veuve de son prédécesseur comme Ard ri Érenn ; Eochaid Mugmedón.
