Fenian cycle definitions

Britannica Concise

Irish tales and ballads centering on the deeds of the legendary Finn MacCumhaill (MacCool) and his war band, the Fianna ireann. An elite volunteer corps of warriors and huntsmen skilled in poetry, the Fianna flourished in the 3rd cent. Fenian lore attained its greatest popularity c.1200, when its outstanding story, The Colloquy of the Old Men, was written down. The cycle remains a vital part of Irish folklore and contains many of the country's best-loved folktales.
