Please, Thomas, could you tell me what book you are reading? While I
was reading a book about St. Columba (Colum Cille), there were many
references to the great Niall of the Nine Hostages, and I became very
curious about him! I would be very happy with any suggestions of books
about him or other legendary Celtic heroes.
