A legendary Celtic adventurer with the ability to
travel through time, Finn MacCool was the greatest leader of the
Fianna, the military elite of ancient Ireland responsible for guarding
the High King.
An unruly band, the Fianna were challenged by Finn
to become models of chivalry and justice. The stories of Finn inspired
many narrative poems and ballads, playing an important part in the
Celtic literary renaissance. Some argue that the tales of the Fianna
are the basis of the legends for the Knights of the Round Table.
In Dean Morrissey’s The Voyage of the Fianna, we find the inspirational
hero Finn sailing through the sea of time.
