    The Children of Lir

    On a little green island in days of old
    A story of magic and courage was told
    There once stood a fortress, four children lived here
    Along with their father, the mighty King Lir.

    This charming rhyming story tells the legend of The Children of Lir, who were turned into swans by their wicked stepmother and forced to wander across Ireland for 900 years.

    The Children of Lir is a story from long, long ago, part of an ancient oral tradition, handed down from generation to generation. It's Irelands best-loved legend: the story of Fionnuala, Aodh, Fiachra and Conn, the four children of King Lir - and how they were turned into swans and cursed to wander until the toll of a bell broke the spell and freed them from the enchantment.
