Hi Anna-Marie, Not sure if your interested in Mythology, but I'm almost
to a chapter called 'Enchanted Cave at Cseh Corran'; It deals with the
king of Shi of Cseh Corran, his son Conaran. I'm halfway through the book
and am enchanted with BOTH the tales and the illustrations. See "Irish
Fairy Tales" by James Stephens, Illustrated by Arthur Racham (copyright
1920). I'm finding the tales an excellent introduction into fine Irish
heroes/kings like Tuan Mac Cairill and Fionn. Don't forget the myths,
I've just discovered them, they may hold more truths than some histories
"He was a king, a seer, and a poet. He was a lord with a manifold and
great train. He was our magician. our knowledgable one, our soothsayer.
All that he did was sweet with him. And, however ye deem my testimony of
Fionn excessive, and, although ye hold my praising overstrained,
nevertheless, and by the King that is above me, he was three times better
than all I say." -Saint Patrick.
