Celtic Mythology: FIONN MAC CUMHAILL

The King, the seer, the druid, the intelligent man- His name was Fionn Mac Cumhall. Taking on the childhood nickname meaning fair, Fionn was a man of deep knowledge and wisdom. He came to this unseemly state by accident. As a 7-year-old boy, Fionne met with a seer who had dedicated his life to finding the Salmon of Knowledge who was said to give the knowledge of the world to the first person to taste. While the seer entrusted Fionne to cook it, he burned himself and instinctively sucked his thumb. From that moment on, all he had to do was suck his thumb and the answer would come. If only it were so easy for the rest of us!
