First of what I hope will be many Mythic Mondays! Our first myth is an Irish one and my favorite of the lot (there are many). Even though it’s called The Wooing of Etain (Tochmarc Etaine, don’t ask me to type those accent marks), it actually begins setting up the origins of Aengus Og aka…… Continue reading Mythic Mondays: The Wooing of Etain Part 1
Trying out a new schedule here! Regular posts will be Fridays, and Mondays will become Mythic Mondays where I’ll share different stories from legend and folklore with whoever reads.
