Queen Maeve and the Táin Stories – Pauline McDermott

Mythological goddess Queen Maeve of Connacht and her husband, King Ailill, are the central figures of the Táin stories. They resided at Rathcroghan in County Roscommon. Their exploits are the stuff of legend.

Why did Queen Maeve and her army march easy to the Cooley Mountains and west to Rathmorgan? Why did Fraech travel to the Alps in search of his wife, his children, and his herd? Queen Maeve and the Táin Stories introduces the reader to Ancient Irish Mythology. These are rich and colourful stories of intrigue, courage, valour, strength, betrayal and revenge.

The stories of the intermingling of gods and men have intrigued audiences over the millennia. These stories still have the power to captivate and entertain.
