The Wooing of Étain (Part 4) - Midir and Étain

It's time for Midir to face the music. He and Étain have been enjoying an extended honeymoon at Brú na Bóinne as guests of Aengus, but now he must return to Brí Leith where Fuamnach, the wife he left behind waits. Did we mention that Fuamnach is a powerful sorceress?  Starring: Midir, Étain, Fuamnach. Co-Starring Aengus, The Dagda, Ogma, Lugh.  We talk polygamy in early medieval Ireland, Brehon Law, sorcery , flies in mythology, story adaptation and what the Tao te Ching has to say about water. A cautionary tale on you should consult your first wife before bringing home a second one. Oh, and you might want to listen to the very end. credits Written, presented and produced  by Marcas Ó hUiscín and Stephanie Ní Thiarnaigh.
