The Irish werewolf is different from the Teutonic or European werewolf, as it is really not a “monster” at all.

According to some ancient sources, the Irish werewolves were even recruited by kings in time of war. Known in their native land as the faoladh or conroicht, their predatory behaviour is typical of the common wolf, not beneath the occasional nocturnal raid
