Choose from two of my favourite stories.
Fergus Mac Léite
The first is a very old story indeed. Fergus was a regional king of Ulster who lived near the lwhat is now known as Dundrum in Ulster. He found a way of becoming very famous indeed but he also had his problems especially when he encoountered a fearsome péiste’.
This is great first story to watch. and is fine for all age-groups.
This story is popular with younger children as well so I have included a couple of uselul ‘follow up’ worksheets .
Aithirne The Unsociable.
This is a great story in which a poet-story teller lears a difficult lesson. The poet-storytellers were very important people but even they could not break the rules.
