Na Fianna Goblet

Na Fianna Goblet

This goblet tells the Mythical story of the Na Fianna which translates to The Soldiers. They flourished in Ireland for about 300 hundred years before Christ. Founded in the reign of King Cormac Mac Airt they were to protect the High King at Tara, to set high standards in living and sport and to behave with courage.
Their most noted captain was the great Fionn Mac Cumhail (Fionn Mac Cool) who taught all his thousands of men to be like himself in character, gentleness and generosity. To become a member the young man must be skilled in rhyme and Gaelic poetry. He must be strong in body and able to defend himself against nine of his would be colleagues throwing their spears at him. If he was overtaken, or a hair tangled on this head or a stick cracked under his foot or he failed to remove a thorn from his foot without stopping he was not accepted to the elite force. Each soldier was to avoid brawls and to always show gentleness towards women, children, poets and the common people. He must never by any act bring the Fianna into disrepute.
Each goblet is 7" high hand turned and polished on the inside.


Price: 51.00 (Including VAT at 20%)
