The Cattle Raid of Cualnge By L. Winifred Faraday

The Cattle Raid of Cualnge

L. Winifred Faraday

Available in PDF, epub, and Kindle ebook. This book has 142 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1904.


One of the masterpieces of Irish literature, this is a translation of a story cycle which lies at the core of the saga of Cuchulainn, the son of the God Lug and the daughter of the king of Ulster. Cuchulainn had the strength of Hercules, but was slow in gaining control over his powers, which turned him into a monster, leaving a trail of mayhem in his wake. At the age of seventeen, still beardless, Cuchulainn single-handedly repeals an invasion of Ulster by Queen Mebd of Connacht to steal the mythic bull Donn Cuailnge. Another translation of this story is also on the Global Grey site; The Cattle-Raid of Cooley by Joseph Dunn.
