"A wonderful rediscovery of history, tradition and song from one of the most beautiful places on this breathtaking planet."  

Sam Lee

Winner of best traditional song (BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2016).

A piece of Irish escapism. A Treasured and valuable piece of Irish history. If you have an interest in Irish folklore then this is the book for you. A clever and insightful piece of writing. A book you can dip in and out of easily."  

Julie A. Daly - Amazon review
"[...] Folklore is something you normally associate with the distant past, but there is an intimate quality to the voices in the stories [...] It would make a great gift for an expat from the area and is EXACTLY the kind of book you'd want to be able to look at if you were staying in a cottage or AirBnB in the area."
