WEDNESDAY, April 9th at 7PM: More from TIR NA N'OG

Caledonia continues Marni L. B. Troop's  first journal of her TIR NA N'OG Saga.

As the queens return to Ailech, accompanied by Amergin of the Iberians, what thoughts and plots will come from the three-in-one? A story inspired by the mythological ancient Irish lore of the Book of Invasions.

From . . .

"The people of Ireland in medieval times had never believed that the Gaelic speaking people were native of their land. They had believed that the Ireland was invaded and settled by successive Celtic tribes over different periods. Their history is based largely upon the pseudo-historical Lebor Gabala, translated into English as the "Book of Invasions", and Cath Maige Tuired, or the "Second Battle of Maige Tuired".

"The Book of Invasions form the major part of the Mythological Cycle. The Book of Invasions was supposed to contain the (fictional) history of Ireland. The cycle was written in the book titled Leabhar Gabhála or Lebor Gabala Erren - the "Book of Conquests" or the "Book of Invasions of Ireland". It was the stories of successive invasions and settlement of the Celtic people on Ireland. Five or six different people settled on the Isle."
