Irish Name of the Day!

muir "sea" and ceardach "skilled" implying "skilled in the ways of the sea." The name of three High Kings and one of the greatest Irish military commanders known as "Murtagh of the Leather Cloak," he set out in mid-winter, wearing leather cloaks against the bitter cold, and turned back the maurauding Vikings. He beat the invaders in a sea battle on Strangford Lough in 926, took and burned Viking Dublin in 939, ravaged the Norse settlements in the Scottish Isles with an Ulster fleet in 801 and died in combat in 803, presumably wearing all his cloaks.
