THE CRADLE OF KING CORMAC ULFADA
King Cormac was the first great unifying King of Ireland. His birth is a thrilling, terrifying and redemptive tale of destiny and transformation. Arising from a hasty wooing-episode involving his mother, Etani (Ireland’s most beautiful woman) and his doomed father King Airt., Cormac became a legendary monarch equivalent to an Irish King Solomon.
Blessed with ancient incantations at a sacred well under the caves of Keshcorran, as a new born babe he was snatched from his mother after a child-birth by a she-wolf under a sky of thunder and lightning to be raised with the Faelad or the ‘Wolfing Fellows’. Dubbed the Chariot Child, upon his arrival at Tara, largely unknown and derided, he would become the true Ard Rí or High King of Ireland and possessed the Testing Cup (a precursor to the Holy Grail). Keshcorran represents the shapeshifting tastes of the storied Tokaji desert wine. The spice of this fruitful story demonstrates glory can arrive, be it gilded or plain, whereupon such a great transformational potential asks have you the taste for the truth irrespective of how it arrives and, therefore, ‘will you drink deep or just sip?’.
