Description

Tagann éad as cuimse ar an mbanríon, Méabh, nuair a theipeann uirthi a fear céile, Ailill, a shárú maidir le maoin agus saibhreas. Aige siúd atá an Fionnbheannach, tarbh nach bhfuil a leithéid le fáil in Éirinn. Nó an bhfuil? Seo insint úr bhríomhar ar an scéal is iomráití i dteanga na hÉireann, an Táin, nó Táin Bó Cuailgne mar is fearr aithne air. Am éigin roimh 1106 A.D. a scríobhadh síos i dtosach é i Leabhar na hUidhre, an lámhscríbhinn Gaeilge is ársa dá bhfuil ann, agus áirítear é ar cheann de mhórscéalta an domhain. Tá uaisleacht, crógacht agus tragóid an bhunscéil fite fuaite go healaíonta san úrscéal grafach seo.

A stunning graphic novel of An Táin, the classic tale of Cúchulainn, Queen Méabh and the cattle-raid for the Brown bull of Cooley. Queen Méabh is consumed by jealousy when she finds that her husband, Ailill, has bested her for riches and wealth. To him belongs the Fionnbheannach, a white-horned bull believed to have no equal in Ireland. Or so it seems…

This an exciting retelling of the greatest tale in the Irish language, the Táin or Táin Bó Cuailgne as it is better known. Ranked among the great epics of the world it was written down in the Book of Leinster, the earliest manuscript in Irish, sometime before 1106 A.D. The nobility, courage and tragedy of the original are subtly blended together in this superb graphic novel.
