The Legend of Tir Na nOG

Artwork and story research by Lauren Ryan and Aoife Nolan, Coolderry National School, County Offaly, Ireland.
Tir Na nOg is a very beautiful land. In Tir Na nOg the leaves don’t fall from the trees or die. The flowers bloom all year round, and you can smell the scent of them miles away. If you are ever lucky enough to go to Tir-Na-nOg you would see young, happy people there.

If you spent five days in Tir-Na-nOg, it would be about three or more years in Ireland. Tir-Na-nOg has a stream going through it and green hills all over. The people there have beautiful clothes, and you would eat off of gold plates and drink out of crystal glasses.

For entertainment the people would play tin whistles or play gold harps. The scenery is beautiful and the sun shines most of the time. The people tell wonderful exciting stories, and the children play lots of games.

Tir Na nOg translation means “THE LAND OF EVER YOUNG.” It is sometimes spelled as Tir Na Og and Tir a nOg
