The Children of Lir

 The Children of Lir is the Irish legend of four children who were transformed into swans by their wicked Stepmother Aoife.

 

Having  placed a curse upon them she condemned the children  to spend a period of three hundred years on the waters of Lough Derravaragh followed by three hundred years on the Straits of Moyle and finally three hundred years on the Western shores of County Mayo.

Only then, with the arrival of Christianity would they once again resume their human form.
