CMP Special 25a - Irish Mythological Cycle Summary Pt 1

April 8th, 2011

Episode 65 of 98 episodes

In this show we start to summarise the Irish Mythological Cycle as we've met it so far in the first 29 story episodes. Not only is this show finishing off a whole branch of Celtic Mythology, but it also celebrates the Autumn Equinox for 2011, so we've made it a real cracker and split it into two halves. We've got an epic poem, 4 great songs in this first half and we take a look at the Origins of the Manuscripts which these stories come from and highlight some of the the themes we've noticed in the stories. This was the question we asked you: what themes do you think are the most important, and this show includes your ideas as well as ours. We conclude our examination of the Irish Mythological Cycle in the Second Part of this show which will be dropped into the feed and available for download 2-3 days after this one so you have chance to listen to the show and keep it fresh in the old brain box before we finish of the show with the end of the poem, the other observations we've made and yes more great music! Phew!
