The Salmon of Wisdom

With the bag full of tricks and skills that we have collected along the way, we are delighted to bring you an exciting new telling of this old Irish legend: The Salmon of Wisdom.

This is the story of young Fionn, a boy left on his own in a dark, ancient forest, trying to be brave. He meets Aoife and Grainne, the Makers of Warriors. These wise women teach him their ways but there are some things they are not equipped to explain, so they send him to a philosopher Finnigus, deep in the woods. Finnigus spends his days by the river fishing for something that he has been searching for all his life. The boy discovers that sometimes things are not as they seem, and that life’s biggest lessons may play out in ways you never expected or imagined.
