Celtic mythology crosses in and out of Celtic history. The Irish Monks recorded history in writing, passing (and often embellishing) information from generation to generation. Thus we have a deep and rich reservoir of power, romance and insight into the hopes and eternal dreams of a rather primitive tribal people who lived in a mountainous and forbidding world.
For 800 years, the British Crown has tried to conquer and stifle this power. Although many, like the Vikings, left indelible scars, Ireland has never been conquered and Irish mythological tradition is as vibrant and alive as ever. This, to me, represents a kind of immortality…the very thing the Celts hoped for.
The Voyage of the Fianna represents the ship which the immortal Fianna band would sail when moving back and forth "across the veil" between the real world and the afterlife. They are said to have engaged in battles some 300 years apart. Supposedly, the last thing a Viking sailor would see would be the bow of The Fianna emerging from the fog…and then ramming and boarding the Viking ship, laying it to waste. Some argue that the tales of the Fianna are the basis of the legends for the Knights of the Round Table. - DM
