‘In a barrow there is a horn,’ continued Mac. ‘Please fetch it for me.’
‘With pleasure, Mac,’ smiled Inteachán.
‘Head to Knocknarea and find the cairn of Queen Mebh.’ Mac laughed. ‘Enormous great thing, you can’t miss it.’
Inteachán laughed too. She loved fetching things for inclusion in Mac’s almanac.
‘There is a secret chamber that everyone has forgotten about. But not us.’
‘No,’ replied Inteachán, ‘not us.’
