Beautifully pictured and poetically told legends of Ireland's epic hero Fionn.
Go not into a tree having but one trunk, when you fly before Fionn.
My own experience of Fionn Loch is, that the trout have slowly but surely fallen off in number and size.
Fionn took the berries into his hand, and stooped down and smelt them. '
"I can see nothing," said Fionn, and he projected again his grim, gaunt forehead.
It is likely the women were fond of him, for other than Fionn there was no life about them.
But as he was turning the fish Fionn burnt his thumb and thrust it into his mouth, thus receiving the gift of inspiration.
You cannot catch a fish by swimming, but you can try, and Fionn tried.
A miserable journey it was to me, without the tidings of Fionn or the Fianna; it left me through life under pain.
For this same Fiacuil was the husband of Bovmall, Fionn's aunt.
