Oaky so i decided i'd do a spot of campaigning for The Tain. Its not every month you have an opertunity to read a very new translation of a legend first written about in the Annuls of Ireland around 8th A.D. Its such a fantastic story, based around a disagreement over a bull which brings two parts of Ireland into a war. Its also about two friends, Setanta(Cuchulainn) and Ferdia, that grew up together but have been unfortunate to find each other on opposite sides and are made to fight one another to choose the outcome of the battle.
Map of general area The Tain is set
It would be great to be able to read this with all of you, and of course i'd be here to help anyone with any queries regarding info, places, pronunciation etc....
So Vote The Tain!
