IRISH GODS AND HEROES
Balor and Gubbaun
'In the day of long ago and the times that have disappeared for ever...' The very words set the the imagination racing, heralding a strange and wonderful tale from the dawn of Ireland's past, when the old gods held sway and the lad was peopled by high kings and heroes.
Balor of the evil eye was the god of death whose one eye was said to be so malevolent that it could destroy anyone upon whom he gazed. Tonight we recount the story of when Balor met the Irish hero Gubbaun Saor, "the wondersmith".
