THE COMPASS OF LADY KESSAIR
Lady Kessair, was the daughter of Noah's son, Bith. She too had a premonition of the great flood, so put together a flotilla of three ships and headed to Noah’s ark for protection. Refused entry, her flotilla sailed out of the Mediterranean Sea, eventually sighting a beautiful and mystical green Isle. Her ship contained fifty women and three men (her husband Fintann, her brother and navigator Ladra and her father Bith). The other two ships tried to land in West Cork but crashed. Her ship found its way to the safety of Sligo Bay, using Knocknarea mountain as a compass.
