Cormac the Royal has arrived!

Written by a CP Intakes volunteer

Our newest Col. Potter boy is Cormac, a 7 year old owner surrender. He was a loved family member but due to changing dynamics, rescue was necessary. He's a handsome wheaten boy with a regal look and stance. A good belly rub is enjoyed when he's not attending to royal duties.

Cormac is a name with an Irish-Gaelic origin with more than one history. Here's the history of the name that I thought was the most fitting: From old Irish corbmac "son of the charioteer." Cormac Mac Airt was probably the most famous of the ancient kings of Ireland. As a ruler of Tara, the seat of the high kings of Ireland, he was famous for his wise, true and generous judgments. Cormac owned the wonderful gold cup given to him by the sea-god Manannan Mac Lir. If three lies were spoken over it, it would break in three; three truths made it whole again. Cormac used this cup during his kingship to distinguish falsehood from truth and when he died, the cup vanished.

Today, Cormac is holding the gold cup high so that all cairns can see it as a beacon to guide them to Col. Potter and a good fun life.

Please Welcome Cormac!
