Salmon Of Knowledge Oil Painting – Irish Painting inspired by one of Ireland’s most famous tales of Celtic Folklore

Salmon Of Knowledge oil painting by KT McCaffrey. This piece inspired from one of Ireland’s most famous tales from Celtic folklore and mythology. Legendary tales speak of a magical fish in the River Boyne called ‘The Salmon Of Knowledge’. It claims that anyone who eats it’s flesh would gain a world of knowledge. One day a wise old man finally caught the legendary fish. He ordered Fionn to cook the fish, however while cooking it he turned the fish.  The hot skin burnt Fionn’s thumb. Fionn put his thumb into his mouth to take away the pain, from that moment Fionn gained all the knowledge in the world!.
