On a little green island in days of old

A story of magic and courage was told.

There once stood a fortress, four children lived here

Along with their father, the might King Lir...

The Children of Lir is a story from long, long ago, part of an ancient oral tradition, handed down from generation to generation. It's one of Ireland's best-loved legends: the story of Fionnuala, Aodh, Fiachra and Conn - the children of King Lir - and how they were turned into swans, cursed to wander until the toll of a bell broke the spell.
