Aideen was the wife of Oscar who was descended from Oisin son of
Fionn mac Cumhaill. It is said that she was considered to be a
foreigner when she came and became the wife of Oscar. She died of grief
when her husband fell at the Battle of Gabhra. Aideen was then buried
in Ben Edar in Howth, Co. Dublin, next to Oisin and an ogham stone was
erected to commemorate her memory.
