Benbulbin

250.00

This piece made of Maple takes its shape and form from the majestic Benbulbin in Yeats Country. Legend has it as one of the hunting grounds of the Fianna and the story of The Pursuit of Diarmuid and Gráinne, in which the warrior Diarmuid is tricked by Fionn mac Cumhaill into fighting an enchanted boar, which later kills the warrior by piercing his heart with its tusk. The mountain is said to be Diarmuid and Gráinne’s resting place. McCool is also said to have found his long-lost son Oisín at this location.
