The Salmon of Knowledge

This new take on a well known favourite Irish Mythological story reminds us of the magic and mystery that is evoked from these handed down tales.  In this story we find out about Fintan the Salmon of kowledge and what happens to him when the Druid Finegas comes into his story and how the young scholar Demna becomes such an important figure in our mythology.

The Salmon of Knowledge was re-adapted and read by Sinéad McClure.
