Review: Irish Folk Tales

User Review  - Ginny Grafton - Goodreads

I think every Irish folktale ever told is included in this book! Collected by the likes of Yeats and Lady Gregory, this collection lovingly records folktales exactly in the words of their narrators. I loved it and recommend it as a great starting point for anyone interested in Irish storytelling. Read full review

Delightful, engaging and very readable selection of Irish Folktales. I would love to have this book on hand to use in telling tales to the grandchildren. Scholarly background to folktale collection provided in the Introduction. Read full review
