There are not many giants and warriors connected with this district. There are stories about giants outside of this district.
If we look over from our school to the mountains we can see Slieve Gullion where the Cailleach Bearra lived. The is a story about Fionn McCumhail.
One day Fionn was out hunting in the woods with his two dogs Bran and Sgeolan. Fionn saw a deer and his two dogs went in pursuit after it until it led them to the top of Slieve Gullion.
