Epsiode 128 - Invasions - The Hawk of Achill

Candlelit Tales Irish Mythology Podcast

25-08-2021 • 25 mins

Welcome back to the Invasions Series. This is the last episode of this fairly long series. And we decided to end it on a caracter we met in the very first story, and one who has cropped up a couple of times since; Fintan Mac Bocera. He is known as the wise seer, and spiritual connection between man and island. He transformed to become one with every aspect of Ireland, and observe it from every point of view. He has seen all of the people come to Ireland, and he has watched from the eyes of a boar, a stag, a salmon and even a bird. But now he meets the hawk of Achill again, and they share their desire to rest. This is a tale with a very definite end point… Fintan and the Hawk walk away from this world, together, never to return. We will be talking about this story in more detail in the next episode.
