YC Barnaribbon View
The enraged Fionn pursues the couple the length and breadth of Ireland and catches up with Diarmuid on the slopes of Benbulben where he tricks him into fighting an enchanted wild boar. After a fierce and drawn out battle Diarmuid manages to slay the boar with his sword but not before the beast was able to pierce his heart with its tusk. The dying Diarmuid asks Fionn to bring him water from a nearby holy well which he says will save his live. Fionn brings him the water but then opens his hands to let it trickle out between his fingers.
