Finn McCool was the fiercest giant that Ireland had ever known. His two favourite things were fighting and collecting gold. One day he heard that the giants in Scotland had a MASSIVE hoard of gold. In particular it was rumoured that Bennadonner (or the red giant) had the biggest stash.
Now Finn also loved fighting he decided to challenge Bennadonner for all his gold. Bennadonner took up Finn’s challenge and started to cross the causeway, but as he got closer Finn realised he was absolutely MASSIVE and there was no way he could win. So he rushed home to his wife who was very wise.
After telling his wife the problem she thought for a while and then said ‘If you built the causeway can’t you also destroy it? Because remember giants aren’t very good at swimming’. Immediately Finn ran back to the bridge.
‘Wait’ shouted his wife but it was too late Finn had disappeared in a cloud of dust.
Finn made it back to the start of the causeway before Bennadonner made it over. He stamped his foot and the bridge collapsed. The bridge crumbled below Bennadonners feet and with a splash he fell into the sea and drowned.
