The Great Woods are the great and mighty, primeval woodlands in the heart of the Mainland, where the Children of the Great Woods and the majority of the Spiorad Ainmhithe live.


Nestled between the Silver Mountains to the North, the Cloch Mountains to the South and the Socair River to the East, the Great Woods cover a good part part of the Mainland. Some people say, that the Great Woods' Western Boundary goes out to Forfar and the southern boundary to Riverwood and Lake Mór.

In times long past, the Great Woods extended down to Creetown and Bodmin, former lands of the Tribe of Tralee and one of the settlement centres of the Spiorad Ainmhithe.

Children of the Great Woods

The Children of the Great Woods are an ethnic group within the Free Lands, mostly living in the Great Woods.

Spiorad Ainmhithe

See the main article for further information.

The Spiorad Ainmhithe are a small group amongst the inhabitants of the Great Woods, who say of themselves, that they had been in the Free Lands long before the Selkie arrived. Their legends and myths seem to substantiate this claim.

One of the best known examples of these people would be Macha Taise, of Cork Descent, a herbalist and, since very recently, a model for Bicíní Industries.
