Overview

Over three thousand years ago, the legendary Celtic champion Cuchulainn was killed by order of the evil Queen Meadhbh. His wife, who had just given birth to twin boys, died of grief and a broken heart. To protect the orphaned twins from the wrath of the queen, one child, Ferdia, was sent to live with his grandfather in Tir na nOg, the land of eternal youth. Fergus, the second boy could not make the journey, and so the twins were separated. Ultimately the two boys grow up in the same land - but in very different times. This is the story of Ferdia as he begins life in 21st century Ireland. Adopted by Cathal and Eibhlin Suileabhain who raise the child as their own, Ferdia, now called Brian, knows nothing of his true origins. But the blood of Cuchulainn runs strong through his veins, and Brian, gifted with his father's incredible strength and physical prowess, develops a natural talent for modern sport, particularly hurling and soccer! Follow the adventures of a modern Celtic champion as he becomes a legend in the Irish sporting world.

Meet the Author

The Author is a lawyer educated at the University of Notre Dame who lives in the village of Raheny, just north of Dublin in Ireland. He has written many books about Ireland and Irish History and while his books are carefully researched, he prefers a light and fun approach. For example, his book about Irish Castles is called “If Walls could Talk” and the castles themselves tell their own stories. The Legends is his first work of fiction but it incorporates traditional Irish myth and legend to create a truly original and enjoyable story.
