The Immortal Deed of Michael O’Leary

Michael O’Leary was born in Iveleary, the ancient tribal homeland of the O’Leary clan. It is a land of the warrior and the poet, where history and story go hand in hand, and the spiritual and the natural complement each other without contradiction or contrivance.This is a story of Ireland with the clan O’Leary at its core. It offers a perspective of Irish history as viewed from the half-door of a hillside cottage in Iveleary. It is a saga that thunders along the beautiful green and leafy Lee Valley – from its mystical source high up over Gougán, all the way to the Gearagh and the broad meandering latticework of waterways of Corcach Mór na Mumhan. Iveleary is not just a destination, it is a journey into time; it is a sound, a scent, a state of mind. Cónal Creedon invites you to join him on his voyage of discovery into the heartland of O’Leary country; a land where fact and fiction dovetail together seamlessly, and pagan tradition and Christian belief become one.
