“The druids foretold that Balor of the Evil Eye would die by the hand of the son of his daughter Ethne, so he imprisoned her in a tower guarded by many women and ordered that no man should come near her.
Ethne grew up a beautiful maiden. Sometimes, as she stood gazing from her tower, she saw the ships of men pass by, and sometimes she dreamt of a man with shining hair, but the women would give her no answer when she spoke of her dreams.’ Excerpt from THE SILVER ARM by #JimFitzPatrick

Fantasy Art Print from my original painting ‘Ethne Mother Of Lugh’. This original artwork was painted for my book THE SILVER ARM and is based on the Celtic art, myths and legends of Ireland.
