Fingal the Fearless was a legendary Irish wizard. It was alleged that he was also an Aingingein champion.[1]


The name "Fingal" is from Scottish Gaelic Fionnghall meaning "white stranger", derived from fionn "white, fair" and gall "stranger". This was the name of the hero in James Macpherson's epic poem 'Fingal' (1762), which he claimed to have based on early Gaelic legends about Fionn mac Cumhail.
