Graphic novel – paperback

Queen Maeve becomes extremely jealous when she fails to surpass her husband, Ailill, in property and wealth.  He owns the Fionnbheannach, a bull of the highest calibre, not found in Ireland.  Or is it?  This is a new account of the most famous story of the Irish language, the Táin or Táin Bó Cuailgne as it is better known.  Sometime before 1106 AD it was first written in Leabhar na hUidhre, the oldest surviving Irish language manuscript and is considered one of the world’s greatest stories.  The nobility, bravery and tragedy of the original story are artistically intertwined in this graphic novel.
