O’ Donoghue’s White Horses

May 2, 2014 @ MoC



“Every seventh May Day, the Irish chieftain O’ Donoghue returns to the Lakes of Killarney riding his great white steed, gliding over waters to sweet unearthly music, a host of fairies preceding him and strewing his path with spring flowers. Foaming waves on a windy day are thus known as O’ Donoghue’s white horses. Legend has it that more than one beautiful young girl believed so strongly in O’ Donoghue that she threw herself into the water so that he would carry her off to be his bride.”
