Lion of Ireland
by Morgan Llywelyn

Brian Boru was not a myth, but a real man. His life and times are extensively documented, which is what made him so attractive to me as a subject. In LION OF IRELAND there are only two fictional characters - one of whom is Fiona, the druid woman, who represents the mystical face of Ireland. The other is Padraic the spear carrier. Aside from those two and their input into the story, everything else is told as it happened - including the saga of the astonishing Gormlaith!
