Sinead Giblin- “Cormac Ulfada” (The Last High King of Ireland) $120.00

Sinead Giblin was born and lives in Dublin. Has always been a great lover of art and craft from a very young age and comes from a long line of painters and other creative enthusiasts.

Cormac mac Airt (son of Art) or Cormac Ulfada (long beard), is said to have ruled from Tara, the seat of the High Kings of Ireland, for forty years, and under his rule Tara flourished. He was famous for his wise, true, and generous judgments. The end of the reign of High Kings of Tara came with the conversion to Christianity, there continued to be Kings in Ireland up until the twelfth century but they now ruled with different rules, and the celtic legends were changed to feature saints, including St. Patrick in the story of Tír na nÓg.
