The ‘Salmon of Knowledge‘ is a well-known Irish legend about Fionn Mac Cumhaill. Irish Legend has it that the first person to taste this famous Salmon would gain the wisdom and knowledge of the world. Finnegas, Fionn’s mentor, caught the salmon and was very excited that he would be the first to taste the fish and gain the knowledge of the world. He left Fionn to finish cooking the Salmon, when a cooking blister appeared on the Salmon’s skin, Fionn burst it with his thumb and in doing so burnt his thumb, without thinking Fionn sucked his thumb to stopped the pain, in essence this meant that Fionn was the first to taste the ‘Salmon of Knowledge‘ and he therefore become the wisest man in the world.
