Description

Once upon a time, kings, knights,
and dragons roamed the verdant hills of Ireland, and druids used their sorcery
for both good and evil. It was a time of magic. It was a time of warriors. It
was a time of legends.
The six legends presented here are
taken primarily from two cycles in Irish lore: An Rrai1/2ocht (The Red
Branch Knights Cycle) and An Fhiannai1/2ocht (The Fianna Cycle). These
stories have been passed down from generation to generation in Ireland but will
delight children of any heritage. They deal with many diverse topics, yet they
all share an underlying theme: the journey into adulthood.
