Based on the International bestseller 'Lion of Ireland' by Morgan Llywelyn
Genre Drama/Action Adventure
Period 10th Century
Brian Boru's story is rich in truth and legend. Out of the mist of the country's most violent age, a time when the Norsemen savaged and plundered Ireland at will, he emerged to lead his people too the peak of their golden era.
He was a warrior, and lover: Stronger, braver, and wiser than all other men- the greatest King Ireland has ever known.
His women were as remarkable as his adventures: Fiona, the druidess with mystical powers; Deirdre, the beautiful victim of a Norse invader's brutal lust; and Gormlaith, the six foot red haired Goddess of sensuality.
Set against the barbaric splendours of the tenth century, this is a story in which friends become deadly enemies, bedrooms turn into battlefields and a father and son become strangers unto themselves. Finally together, at the battle of Clontarf, the bloodiest in Irish history, their love and their dreams of glory are truly fulfilled.
