The Tragedy of Balor and his Piercing Eye

Irish Mythology Podcast

Aug 12 2021 • 51 mins

Balor, a giant who lives in an invisible tower, commands one of the most fearsome armies that has ever been. He is prosperous, respected and feared, but there is something in his past that torments him. When Bres and the druid Lobais return to Balor's island stronghold from mainland Ireland  reporting the rise of a new hero, the skeletons in his closet grow new flesh. We talk Balor, his supposedly evil eye, place lore, prophecy, sleep paralysis, Assasin's Creed Valhalla - Wrath of the Druids, the 90's Balor PC RPG, Sauron in Lord of the Rings, Finn Balor in the WWE, and American Gods.  credits Written, presented and produced  by Marcas Ó hUiscín and Stephanie Ní Thiarnaigh.
