Publisher's Summary

Cuculian, "The Hound of Ulster," is the champion of Ireland and is best remembered for his single-handed defense of Ulster. The author of these accounts is Standish O'Grady (1846-1928), whose writings earned him the title "Father of the Irish Renaissance." This is the first time Cuculian's story has been available in audio.

Take a pass on this one...

This was a hard to follow story read by a monotone narrator. The combination of the two was a very painful listening experience for me. If the reader is interested in an Irish themed book, I recommend The Princes of Ireland by Edward Rutheford.

Not easy but rewarding to the studious

This is perhaps not a good book for the audio format for someone unfamiliar with the subject- Many strange unrecognizable names and a lack of modern narrative flow typical of some mythical writings combined with a monotonal narrator make it very easy to zone out while listening. That being said- to someone familiar with the legends herein described,and they are fascinating once you dig in, this book provides an interesting perspective on some old stories.

Very atmospheric

Well read, really builds up the atmosphere, and I didn't get too lost with names and places!

Loved it, wish there were more classic sagas available.
