Myth

Based on the Irish tale 'The Children of Lir.'

Lir, god of the sea, had four children: three boys and a girl whom he loved fiercely, so much so that his second wife, Aoife, became wildly jealous of their bond and plotted against them. She took the children to a lake and cast an evil spell on them, turning them into swans for 900 years. When the first christian bells began to toll after the arrival of Saint Patrick in Ireland, the spell was lifted. The children now in their human form began to age rapidly and were christened before their swift deaths.
