The story is one of the beautiful Queen Meav of Connaught.
When a calf, he had belonged to Meav's herd, but being very proud, and thinking it little honor to be under the rule of a woman, he had left Meav's herd and joined himself to the King's.
Then Meav's sorrow was bitter, and calling a messenger, she asked if he knew where might be found a young bull to match with White- horned.
"Go then,' said Meav, "and ask Dawra to lend me the Bull for a year.
So, empty-handed, the messengers returned to Queen Meav. And she, full of anger, decided to make good the boastful words of her messenger and take Brown Bull by force.
And after many fights there was a great battle in which Meav was defeated.
Thirty minutes before this administration the animals were treated with diclofenac sodium (50 mg/kg), MEAV orally at doses of (200 and 400 mg/kg) and 0.1% CMC (5 ml/kg).
The mice were first treated with different doses of MEAV (200 and 400 mg/kg orally).
The test groups were given MEAV (200 and 400 mg/kg), morphine (5mg/kg) and 0.1% CMC in water were administered orally (21).
The antipyretic activity of MEAV was evaluated using Brewer's yeast-induced pyrexia in rats as described by Loux et al (22).
