The Tuatha De Danann were five tribes from Greece who came to Erin where they fought the demons known as Famorians three times and forged the Chalice of Fire. Whoever drank from it gained immortality but only the just could consume its liquid without harm. It was given first to the gods and then to the elves and dwarves and finally to man. It eventually came to Maeve, who couldn't drink from it. She gave it to Cucullen when he came to the city of Cruachan Ai in Connachtt. He gave it to the Red Branch in Ulster, where peace prevailed as long as it stayed there. From official release/information:
From back of book: In the time when gods and men walked the earth along with demons, the Chalice of Fire, the symbol of peace for Ulster, is stolen from the Red Branch by Bricriu Poisontongue. A small band of Seekers set out to recover and return the Chalice to the Red Branch to restore peace to the Ulster kingdom.
