Irish Myths and Legends Summary


Irish Myths and Legends by Ita Daly

Here are stories of magic, and enchantment, full of kings, fairies and heroes. You'll meet the Children of Lir who were turned into beautiful white swans, Deirdre who had no one to play with but was really a princess, and the savage and merciless King Balor and his Evil Eye. Many of these stories were told to the author as a child by her mother, who in turn would have learned them from her mother, and so on, down the ages.
