Who is the Cailleach, the ubiquitous ancient hag goddess? What happened to make Ireland's Stonehenge disappear? What connects Fourknocks, a tiny passage-tomb, with the stones of Newgrange? What were the indigenous Irish myths about the Milky Way? Did someone try to steal the Tara Brooch? Why are there myths about flooded towns and cities?
