From the Publisher
"...rollicking bawdy, sometimes hilarious, ultimately both tragic and glorious, this tale is of epic proportions yet never loses the human dimension. In retelling Ireland's premier myth, Eickhoff has been true to both the land and the people. his translation is excellent, but of equal merit is the clarification which he brings to an intensely layered, often obscure story. This book is a joy and belongs in the library of everyone who loves Ireland." MORGAN LLYWELYN, autor of Lion of Ireland
