Candlelit Tales

But it was not the High King who refused all suitors. Gráinne herself refused every offer of marriage.
When she was a young girl, she had watched a hurling match and she had seen one boy with curling dark hair and ruddy cheeks. He scored a goal, and the wind blew his hair off his forehead, and Gráinne fell in love with him completely. All her life, she waited for the boy from the hurling field.

But as the years went by without her true love appearing before her, she lost hope that he ever would. And so when Fionn Mac Cumhaill of the Fianna offered marriage to her, she found no good reason to refuse.

The woman they chose as the next wife of Fionn Mac Cumhaill was Gráinne, daughter of the High King of Ireland, Cormac Mac Airt.

Her father had refused every offer for her hand in marriage that he had ever gotten, and he and Fionn Mac Cumhaill had often clashed in the past, so Fionnd decided to send Oisín to ask for Gráinne's hand on his behalf. That way, the king could refuse without giving great insult to Fionn Mac Cumhaill.
