An Toraiocht

Sold Out

An Tóraíocht ("the pursuit") is an Irish-language comic written by Colmán Ó Raghallaigh, drawn by Paul Young, coloured by Michael McGrath, lettered by Diane O'Reilly, and published by Cló Mhaigh Eo in 2002. It adapts the ancient Irish legend Tóraíocht Dhiarmada agus Gráinne ("the pursuit of Diarmaid and Gráinne"), in which Gráinne, the intended bride of the aging hero Fionn mac Cumhaill, falls instead for the young warrior Diarmaid Ó Duibhne, bearer of the love mark, and demands he save her from the marriage. The two run away, with Fionn in pursuit.
