It is a story of battle and love and carnage, of bitter feuds and acts of heroism such as are still part of Irelands heritage today- a story of treachery in high places and loyalty that endured to the death- of Cuchulain, Champion of Ulster, and the famous Cattle Raid of Cooley, of Maeve of Connaught and Deirdre of the Sorrows, all narrated by a young man who was witness to the events which his subsequent retelling made famous in smoky halls of a winters evening, ensuring their immortality.Patricia Finney has written more than twenty novels, including Do We Not Bleed? and Love without Shadows, both published by Climbing Tree Books.
