'No story without a proper campfire and a muga tae! Who's going to make me one eh. White no sugar please!'
Cynthia sits down on the deck and scrapes her throat. "Ach well here we go then. Once upon a time when clans were fighting each other all over Ireland, there was a treasure stolen from Tara. It is said that it travelled all over the place but ended up in Donegal. No one knows what exactly it was that was stolen from Donegal. :mrgreen: some say it was a harp, that made a certain lady travel all over the world to find it.

Now where's me tea?'

The captain on this ship is our dear Grania. :wink: And we're sailing to Donegal. We want to climb up Mt. Errigal to find a treasure there (I hope).

Welcome aboard crewman Methica, you're just in time to help us go and search for Donegal's treasure - does anyone have a map?

well now then if every one is seated here we go.....

Once opon a time in the wild wild times when Ireland wasn't yet known as Ireland and great clans fought their battles over land and cattle and leadership, there was a special place on the far mid-east of the country. Here lived the wise and educated and they had riches beyond imagination.

notice long pause for comments on riches and educated people.....

Goodness, here is a quiet audience. Am I keeping you spellbound?


Well it is those riches I wanted to talk about. One of the most precious items was a harp. Who ever possed the harp, possesed the power. Or so it was rumoured. Who ever had the harp, would reign from Tara.
You can probably imagine how much every one wanted that harp. And then one day ... it got lost


pauses again to listen to all intakes of breath and slurps of tea
