Welcome to the Invasions Series.

We are starting a new series of connected and yet self contained stories for the Podcast. This is the very first story in the Celtic Mythic Cycles… if you go chronologically. Cesaire was the first woman to land on the show of the Island of destiny that became this land we call Ireland today. She came from the Land of Merrow’s in the South, and some say this was modern day Libya.

We will be talking about this story in more detail in the next episode. Drop us a line or ask us a question and we’ll try to get to it in our post show chat coming out this Sunday.

Here are a couple of lovely sources for further reading into the Cesaire myth:
