Eochu or Eochaid Feidlech ("the enduring"), son of Finn, was, according to medieval Irish legends and historical traditions, a High King of Ireland. He is best known as the father of the legendary queen Medb of Connacht.

He ruled for twelve years, and died of natural causes at Tara, succeeded by his brother Eochu Airem. The Lebor Gabála synchronises his reign with the dictatorship of Julius Caesar (48-44 BC). The chronology of Geoffrey Keating's Foras Feasa ar Éireann dates his reign to 94-82 BC, that of the Annals of the Four Masters to 143-131 BC.
