Legends and Stories of Ireland
by Samuel Lover
This is a collection of Irish folklore, framed by first-person
remininces of the author, with some swatches of Irish 'dialect' and
other comic touches.
It was written before the 'Celtic Twilight' books,
so its point is to entertain rather than record folklore.
So the stories are simply evocative of the art of Irish storytelling.
However, there are just enough ghosts, fairy trout,
and other supernatural aspects to please the Celtic lore fan.
