Etymology

The dullahan is a mythical horseman, a headless knight who rides a black horse, sometimes in a cart made from bones and funeral objects that is pulled by the horse. The dullahan will ride through the night and call out a person's name, at which point that person dies, and they will violently strike down anyone who sees them, using a whip made from a human spine to lash out their eyes. The legend of the dullahan may have inspired the Legend of Sleepy Hollow.
