The ways of the wild: The legend of Fionn Mac Cumhaill
Performed by Maria Whatton and Sarah Matthews
Are you ready to learn the ways of the wild?
One of Ireland’s greatest legends will be brought vividly to life by the delightful duo of storyteller Maria Whatton and musician Sarah Matthews.
How many warriors does it take to create a champion? Two to be precise. Two warrior women who have courage enough to outwit an army and fly through fire. These are the caretakers of Fionn Mac Cumhaill, the Irish champion, who owes his skills and spirit to his mighty ‘Aunts’.
