Fermanagh Folk Tales

book Fermanagh Folk Tales
Fermanagh‘s culture, heritage, characters and stories sets it apart from other places. Every mountain, tree, lake, stream, rock, stone and character tells a tale. There are the stories about "educated" ancient Irish pigs who understood three languages (Irish, Latin and English) and monsters that lurk under the surface of Lower Lough Erne, and there are spooky tales of ghosts, such as that of a murdered stableboy said to haunt the stable of Tempo Manor and the strange glowing ball of light that has been seen at Castle Crom, which rolls around the lake and foretells of major events that will affect the whole of Ireland. And there are the "hints," or tall tales, that the locals love to retell. All these stories and more are featured in this collection of tales which will take you on an oral tour across the county.

The O'Brien Book of Irish Fairy Tales and Legends

Irish fairy tales and legends are full of enchantment, brave deeds and lost loves. Told from generation to generation, they are as fascinating now as they were to their original listeners.

This wonderfully rich and varied collection are ten of the best-loved traditional Irish stories, retold by author and poet Una Leavy. The Post of Gold captures the trickery and mischief of leprechauns; the story of Oisin in Tír na n-Óg marks the end of the great Fianna. From 2000 years ago comes The Children of Lir … all stories to be treasured for years to come.

Susan Field's beautiful illustrations are inspired by ancient Celtic art and culture. They capture the wealth of tradition, the humor and the magic of these great stories.
