A mighty eagle soars through icy winds to find the eldest animal

In the time of St Ciaran, we hear about a day of incredibly bad weather. The ancient and mighty Eagle, Léithin, sets off on a quest to discover whether there was ever a day of worse weather. This tale, re-discovered in 1916, re-tells a common theme in Celtic Mythology - the search for the oldest animal.
