If you already know the stories of Cuchulain and the Red Branch Warriors, you will notice a very great difference between them and these stories of Finn Mac Cool. Both concern the adventures of Irish heroes, their loves and hates, their battles with strange and supernatural beings. Yet they belong to two quite different worlds.

They were a war-host whose task was to hold the shores of Erin safe from invaders, and they were a peace-host, for it was their task also to keep down raids and harryings and blood feuds between the. five lesser kingdoms into which Erin was divided

Rosemary Sutcliff writes with depth and accuracy of history and myth, that I'm sure if you could read all her books, you'd know just about everything. Finn Mac Cool is written in a beautiful style that puts you in the character's place. The flow and incredible scenery of the book makes it a good read for girls, and the intense attraction and gore is active enough for boys to read over and over.

Rosemary Sutcliff, Michael Charlton (Illustrator). The Irish and Scottish legends of Finn MacCool, drawn together in the form of a continuous narrative. If I have to recommend one book to anyone to start on the legends of the Fianna, I usually recommend this one. Despite the fact that it was not written by an Irish author, this book was my first love of Fionn and his men, and every time I re-read it I fall in love with it even more.

Set more than a thousand years ago, in a shifting time when enchanted beasts, strange creatures, and the Fairy Kind still flickered in and out of the lives of men, the ancient stories of Finn MacCool and the Fianna shimmer with magic.

I was so happy to find this book, which I loved reading to my kids and their friends and now want to give as a gift. It is the wonderful saga of Finn MacCool, the legendary Irish hero, whose exploits and adventures have a unique twist that sets them apart from comparable stories of Greek/Roman or Viking mythology. Often his victories are brain over brawn, daring plots and clever solutions that outwit the enemy. And the stories are full of the nature world, and the Irish landscape, which seems so characteristic of Celtic legend. A real treasure!
