The Celtic Legends of Old!

Nearly all the Celtic peoples have interesting legends.Wales for example has King Owain.The ancient Gauls of France wich thier warrior king Vercingetorix(superior warrior king) and his battles with Julius Ceaser.The sack of Rome by Celtic king Brennus.But the Irish legends are some of the most interesting.The Selkies and the Kelpie.The legends of great Irish heros Cu Chuliann who use to be called Setanta.The ones about Finn MacCool.The ones about Queen Mabh fighting Cu Chulainn in the the Tain Bo Cuilghe in the Ulster Cycles.Tain Bo Cuilghe was the Cattle Raid of Cooley.The stories of the Nemedians,Fomorians,Fir Bolgs,and the Tuatha De Dannan.The story of the real life greatest High King(Ard Ri) of Ireland named Brian Boruma mac Cennitig who defeated the Vikings.He did that in 1014 at the Battle of Clontarf,near Dublin.Its just neat stuff to read and listen too!
