This project is a matching project to the Liban Film. It will involve an illustrated book exploring the ancient origin-myth of Lough Neagh and Liban the water goddess/mermaid, as preserved in the 12th century Irish manuscript ‘ Lebor na hUidre – the Book of the Dun Cow’ and other key Irish texts. The Lough Neagh book will be a result of extensive research and consultation with folklorists and Irish language scholars, illustrated in full by one of Northern Ireland’s best illustrators Sara O’Neill. The publication of this illustrated book, researched thoroughly yet written for the general reader, will both preserve and promote the unique and fascinating folklore of Lough Neagh and increase our understanding of its heritage.
