Known more as the fearsome pirate who sailed the seven seas in the 16th Century, this podcast wonders at what started her on that swashbuckling path.

Episode Two: Magic has taken Donal. When no one believes her, Grainne and her best friend Flaherty sneak out of the castle to find the one person they think can help.
