Pocket Irish Legends
28 classics to delight and entertain
Compiled by Tony Potter

High kings, forbidden romance and ancient magic all feature in these rich and colourful myths. Packed with 28 classic tales drawn from Ireland’s ancient tradition of storytelling, these legends will delight children of all ages – as they have for generations. 

In this book you will find tales of beautiful princesses and handsome princes, brave kings, beautiful queens, wicked stepmothers, greedy landlords, wily druids, practical saints, magic spears, singing harps, slithering snakes, fierce dragons, cruel enchantments, courageous deeds, mischievous fairies and clever leprechauns.

Ireland’s rich and colourful history is reflected in these myths and legends which have been handed down from generation to generation.

This popular pocket format will appeal to visitors to Ireland. And for children in Ireland with names such as Deirdre, Aoife, Conor, Gráinne, Diarmuid, Brian, Maeve, Fionn and Oisin, the question ‘Where does my name come from?’ is easily answered with a story.

Here are stories to be enjoyed by children and adults alike – just like they have been for hundreds of years.
