Stories told by Yvonne:

Lugh, the Shining One
Irish 5:12
Lugh, “the Shining One,” one of the characters of Irish mythology, approached the great halls of Túatha Dé Danaan at the Hill of Tara, the seat of high kings of Ireland, asking to be admitted. The gatekeeper refuses, saying that only people possessing unique skills, or talents, are allowed in. Lugh declares to have a mastery of a number of such skills and talents, but to no avail – such people are already inside. Listen, to find out what was the special talent to let him in.
