After a lifetime of fishing for the legendary Salmon of Knowledge, the poet Finegas at last caught it in the River Boyne. The salmon was obviously magic, sparkling brightly in the morning sun. It was known throughout the land that whomever ate its flesh would receive all its knowledge. Finegas gave the fish to Fionn, his student, with instructions to cook it and not to eat it. Fionn cooked the salmon, turning it over and over, but when Fionn touched the fish with his thumb to see if it was cooked, he burnt himself on the hot fish fat. Fionn sucked on his burned thumb to ease the pain. Without knowing it Fionn had received all of the salmon’s great knowledge from this action. The
deep wisdom gained from the Salmon of Knowledge allowed Fionn to become one of the greatest leaders Ireland had ever known..
