This book contains some great stories – stories first told thousands of years ago, so long ago we’ve forgotten who wrote them or when they were written.
They were told by storytellers at fairs and firesides and later by grandmothers and fathers, uncles and sisters. The oldest people in the village told them to the youngest.
This book brings to life 6 stories from the myths and legends of ancient Ireland.
The legends, which have been known and loved for centuries, are delightfully retold by Brenda Maguire and superbly illustrated by Robert Bates.
The tape features the voices of Kathleen Watkins, Niall Toibin, Ronnie Drew, Paul Acheson, Maxi and Marian Finucane.
Also available in Irish entitled Finnscéalta na hÉireann.
