The Story of An Phiast
As they watched, a ripple crossed the water, green scales sliced through the surface, followed by the cheeky monster’s head.
“May you have bad health Cuan,” said An Phiast and opened his enormous mouth to swallow St. Cuan.
“The same curse on you,” said St. Cuan, throwing the pot on top of the monster’s head.
“How long will this pot be on my head?” the monster roared.
“For eternity and to the end of time,” responded St. Cuan.
“Forever is a long time,” the monster said sadly, “If I didn’t have the pot on my head, I would eat you and half the world with you”.
“You won’t eat anything else now, there is no fear of that, you will not cause any more trouble or damage here again,” said St. Cuan.
St. Cuan is buried in the townland of Moorestown parish and An Phiast lurks in Loch Corraillí with the pot on his head. Locals say you may still see the monster and, if you listen, you might hear his cries echoing through the pot.
Animation Dingle feels An Phiast has suffered enough, and are happy to welcome him to our festivities each year. Keep an eye out for him and let him join in the fun!
