About the Series: Fionn mac Cumhaill
The Fionn mac Cumhaill series is a series of Irish mythological and adventure novels based around some of the early events outlined in Macgnímartha Finn (The Boyhood Deeds of Fionn).

An exciting contemporary version of a narrative that’s almost a thousand years old, it recounts the adventures of Fionn during his upbringing at Ráth Bládhma and of the people who protected him there (his aunt Bodhmhall, the woman warrior Liath Luachra, Fiacail mac Codhna and Muirne Muncháem). Despite being a work of historical fiction, the series aligns completely with the original 12th century manuscript on which it is based.
