    There are many legends, some are based in fact, some are fiction, all are archetypes.

    I think he was real. However the stories of him have been GREATLY exagerated. I also think there is some truth to the fianna. Keep in mind that while continental fairytales start out "Once upon a time in a kingdom far far away ther lived a.....". Irish mythology names names and places.
