One of the eight sites on the Echoes of the Causeway heritage trail app, this story is set at the King’s Fort, Drumsurn.

King’s Fort is a Medieval royal site steeped in local legend. Four boulders flung in rage upon this landscape broke Queen Meabh’s witchy bones and stole her soul, carving out valleys and sprouting Smulgedon Hill.


The Witch Maebh

Written by Dominic Montague

Meet the witch Meabh and glimpse the Goddess beneath – an earth quaking, world shaking, chase to the death, where dying is anything but the end of the story.
