The Riverdance Organisation wanted aspects of Irish mythology (No Leprechauns, please !!!) for their website that was being assembled by Babel Media. I did some research, but I wasn’t that Internet-savvy then as I am now, so these characters are decorated with some artists licence. The Fir Bolg are not necessarily blue but I thought they should be, and Bolg could mean belly…….the Grogoch (middle ) is impervious to heat and cold but witnesses didn’t always agree on it’s appearance. I felt a bundle of animated twigs was just fine. The Fear Gorta, the Man of Hunger, is a good likeness, however...this one I DID get right. He was much in evidence around the mid-Nineteenth Century...the Great Potato Famine.
