Hang Tag story card reads…

Rathlin Island lies off the north coast of Antrim near the ‘Giants Causeway’. Local legend tells of the ‘Children of Lir’ King Lir had four children one girl, Fionnuala, and three sons, Aodh and twins, Fiachra and Conn. Jealous of the children’s love for each other and for their father, their wicked stepmother Aoife used her magic to turn the children into swans condemned to wander through Ireland until the spell could be broken by a monks blessing. Aoife herself was punished for this act transformed by her father into an air demon for all eternity.
