Irish Fairy & Folk Tales

Set in Medieval Ireland, this collection of 10 stories were gathered in the late 19th and early 20th century by writer James Shepherd, described by James Joyce as 'my rival, the latest Irish genius'. The lyricism and humour within these retellings are unequalled and provide wonderful insight into the culture and traditions of Ireland.

Drawn from the Fenian Cycle of Irish mythology, they include:

  • The Birth of Bran
  • The Enchanted Cav of Cesh Corran
  • Mongan's Frenzy
  • The Carl of the Drab Coat
