Oisin & Niamh
Oisin, a great Bard and warrior was the son of Fionn Mac Cumhail
and the Goddess Sadbh. Whilst out on a hunt with the Fianna he
saw Niamh riding a horse with silver hooves and a golden mane.
When questioned she told him she had come a long way to bring
him to her fathers land. Blinded by love,Oisin followed her to
Tir na n'Og.
He stayed with her in The Land of Eternal Youth for three hundred years,
a time that felt like three weeks to him. When he asked to return to
his father in Erin, Niamh offered him her horse and made him promise that
he would never step on to the ground. Upon his return the girth slipped
and he fell to the earth an old man, no longer preserved in the eternal
youth of the otherworld.
