The Táin: The Great Irish Battle Epic (Paperback)
A new translation of Ireland's national epic myth by award-winning author and Irish language expert Alan Titley.
When Queen Maeve's army marches north to steal the Brown Bull of Cooley, the leaders of Ulster are cast under a sleeping spell.
Just one boy comes out to face the warrior queen and her invading Connacht horde. A lad who has sworn to protect his homeland like a guard dog: the hero C chulainn. He's only a beardless youth against an army of men, but when he twists into his war-form, C chulainn is the fiercest fighter in Ireland.
This is Irish legend as you haven't read it before.
