The Piper of Tir n’Og
The famed warrior Finn goes on a quest into Tir n’ Og (pronounced tear-ah-naug), the Celtic land of eternal youth and happiness. At the end of his stay, he persuades an enchanted bagpiper to leave paradise and journey with him back to the world to join the Fianna (military elite of ancient Ireland) as their piper. His enchanted pipes stir the troops and summon their spirits to the task, defending the Celtic realm from any and all enemies. The piper travels with Finn for a time, but grows restless, tells Finn that the Fianna do not need him to play in order to fight and that his ability is needed elsewhere. Finn releases him and for the next 300 years he roams the Celtic lands, his music awakening people to seek out the beauty and grace which lives within them.
