Children also play a part in Irish folklore. The haunting story of The Children of Lir has its origins in Lough Derg in North Tipp. The story tells how King Lir’s children were turned into swans by their jealous stepmother, destined to live life on the lough for 300 years. Just one of the magical tales that have enchanted Irish children for centuries.
