Ireland is a land of legend & fairy stories, home to banshees & leprechauns, sprites & spirits, & mythical heroes. Produced in written form since the 8th century, these tales date back to a much earlier past, when Celtic druids provided their flocks with oral histories of mighty deeds & mighty heroes, many of which had links with Celtic races all over Europe. This book includes over 40 of these tales in prose & poetry: of the giant Finn MacCool; of Daniel O’Rourke & his flight on the eagle’s back; of how Setanta became the Hound of Chulainn; tales of the great heroes, the Fianna; the legend of Knockgrafton & many more. Illustrated.
