MYTHS AND FOLKLORE OF IRELAND: Folklore and legends from the Emerald Isle
Myths and Folklore of Ireland is the first of many works published by the renowned American translator Jeremiah Curtin. The volume is comprised of twenty-three Irish myths, in which the the legends of Fin MacCumhail feature prominently. While the collection includes tales of Kings, Queens, princes, and princesses, it also tells stories of tailors' sons, fishermen, and many other normal folks who make good in the most surprising circumstances. More given to legend than fairy, Myths and Folklore of Ireland is better suited to adult readers than children. A percentage of the profits from this book will be donated to the Prince's Trust for education scholarships for the underprivileged.
