Summary "In the children of Lir, Erin is a land of harsh enchantment and tragedy-- even for a sea god, whose innocent children are so cruelly cursed by their foster mother. In the epic tales of Cú Chulainn, it is a proud realm of valiant heroes and near-impossible quests for love. In the stories of Finn Mac Cool Erin is a kingdom of glory where Finn leads his band of warriors, the Fianna, through their perilous adventures in defence of Erin's shores, to a place in Irish legend forever"--Container.
