About the author (2001)

Patrick Weston Joyce (1827-1914) was a noted historian who produced many books about Irish history and culture. His expertise in this area made him the ideal translator of these tales from the original Gaelic, and his retellings are highly readable, offering more color and detail than many other interpretations of Irish folklore.
