Colloquy of the Ancients
A collection of Ossianic legends of ancient Ireland made
into one work about the thirteenth or fourteenth century. It relates
how the Fian heroes Keelta and Oisin, each with eight warriors,
meet to talk over the glorious past for the last time. Then
Oisin returns to the Fairy Mound of his mother, and Keelta
meets with St. Patrick and his monks at Drumdreg. Keelta tells
the saint many tales, interspersed with lyrics, with which he is
delighted. The paint eventually baptizes Keelta and his warriors
and grants them absolution
