Summary - Conall Gulbann the son of the King of Ireland.

The King of Ireland was out hunting when he became separated from his noblemen by a strange mist. He came across a dwelling where there was an old man and his wife and daughter, and he spent the night there. When he awoke, the girl had given birth to a son, and the king found that he had been there for three seasons. The son was named Conall Gulbann. The king returned to his castle with the aid of magic boots.

Years later the king was summoned to take part in a war, and his three sons insisted on coming with him. He sent for Conall Gulbann to rule Ireland in their absence. When Conall was left on his own, he went back to visit his grandfather. He gave Conall magic boots and a magic sword and he joined the war and won the battle.
