Collected from anthologies and journals published from the mid-nineteenth century to the present day, here are 125 magnificent folktales.

Beginning with tales of the ancient times and continuing through the arrival of the saints in Ireland in the fifth century, the periods of war and family, the Literary Revival championed by William Butler Yeats, and the contemporary era, these robust and funny, sorrowful and heroic stories of kings, ghosts, fairies, treasures, enchanted nature, and witchcraft are set in cities, villages, fields, and forests from the wild western coast to the modern streets of Dublin and Belfast.

Accompanied by black-and-white drawings throughout, this collection will delight readers both young and old.
