Default ‘liath luachra’ by cork author brian o'sullivan optione

I’m really pleased to announce that Liath Luachra: The Grey One - a novel based on a little-known character from the 12th century Macgnímartha Finn (The Boyhood Deeds of Fionn mac Cumhaill) has been optioned as a potential television series by Graisland Entertainment.



Spent a lot of time making this book as culturally and historically accurate as possible to avoid the cliches of the whole 'Celtic Fantasy' genre. When you release a book into film industry however, you pretty much lose all control of the story and how its represented so it'll be interesting to see where they go with it.

For anyone interested, the details can be found here: https://irishimbasbooks.com/liath-lu...vision-series/

Cheers

Brian

No, this guy is genuine not a nut case.

Best of luck with the film and I hope they do not frustrate you too much.
