Myths and Legends
In ancient times ’till now, myths and legends are preserved and studied all over the world.

“Children of Lir” (Irish: Oidheadh chloinne Lir) is a Celtic legend that combines the Christian message of freedom through the world of magic and spells. The legend shows the Christianization of Ireland and its influence on the old faith, as the elements of the new religion are everywhere in the mythological characters – from the perception of the main characters about the passage of too much time (shows the passing of old beliefs); to the part of the legend that shows the coming of a new age appearance when they hear the ringing of the bells of a new religion ”).
