Under the Hawthorn Tree
A feast of Fairy Wonder
The legendary Sidhe, otherwise known as the ‘wee folk’ or the ‘other crowd’ are said to dwell beneath the mounds of Ireland. A far cry from the fairies of Disney movies, these ‘good folk’ can be mischievous, malevolent or benevolent. One thing is for sure, their stories are never dull.
Dalriada Legends storytellers will delight you with the very best of stories about these
mysterious and magical beings.
Selkies, Shipwrecks and Sea Shanties
From the loss of The Enterprise of Lynn in 1827 to the Princess Victoria in 1955, the Antrim Coast abounds with stories of shipwrecks. Raging storms, terrible tragedy and stories of great
heroism all feature in these mighty maritime tales. Inevitably, ghostly apparitions,
supernatural sealfolk and some very inspiring figures from history appear in the local verse and song.
Join the storytellers and songsters of Dalriada Legends on a journey along our coast, into the
past and under the waves.
The Pursuit of Love - Diarmuid and Grainne
This epic tale of betrothal and betrayal has it all; sorcery, seduction, destiny and danger.
The great warrior Fionn McCumhaill is all set to marry Grainne, but her heart is captured by another, Fionn’s friend and fellow member of the Fianna – Diarmuid. A great chase ensues.
But when a feud crosses borders and spans decades, can there be a happy ending?
Children of Lir and Other Tales of Tir na nOg
The Vikings have their Valhalla and the Celtic lands have Tir na nOg, a land where no one grows old and the trees drip with honeyed fruit all day long. Dalriada Legends will take you
into that world where fire was born, where Oisin, the warrior poet was spirited away by the enchantress Niamh and where four children of a King were turned into swans.
