The Original Headless Horseman
The Original Headless Horseman
These headless monsters of Celtic lore are connected to horses, carriages, and graveyards—and they cannot be defeated. Oscar Wilde even called them “the most terrible thing in the world.”

The dullahan can be male or female, but they are always headless, a characteristic that makes sense given Ireland’s social and religious history. Ultimately this monster is a personification of death, a monster that reminds us all not to “lose our heads” in more ways than one.
