Feis Tigh Chonáin

0.3 KGs:





A retelling of a ‘Fionn’ tale written in the 15th Century. New illustrated edition (2020)

When Fionn mac Cumhaill and Diorraing go astray in the dark woods, they find themselves in the house of their enemy, thus beginning a night of storytelling that lasts to this very day, and a story culminating in a wedding feast arson and murder on the banks of Lough Derg.

Feis Tigh Chonáin Chinn tSléibhe was written sometime in the beginning of the 15th century, a story in the great tradition of Fiannaíocht similar to Tóraíocht Dhiarmada agus Ghráinne (the Pursuit of Diarmaid and Gráinne) and Agallamh na Seanórach (The Colloquy of the Ancients). For the last couple of hundred years this story has been taken down by scribes in manuscripts that were read by the fire in households of the Gael. This new retelling by Darach Ó Scolaí has been written for today’s readers.
