The game of Aingingein originated in Ireland and was the subject of many famous ballads. Each player would take the Dom (a goat's gallbladder) and fly through a series of burning barrels, each set high upon stilts, on a broomstick. The Dom would then be thrown into the final barrel. The winner was the player who completed the task in the shortest time without catching on fire.[1]

The legendary wizard Fingal the Fearless was said to have been an Aingingein champion.[1]
