    Paperback Ï Irish Folktales eBook Ì irish ebok, folktales mobile, Irish Folktales KindleThis was an engaging and well put together collection of Irish folktales I'm fond of stories involving fairies changelings etc and unfortunately this collection doesn't have many of these types of stories A lot of the folktales are also newer published in the 1960s and 1970s Being half Irish it was interesting to explore my roots but I'm not sure if this was my favourite collection of folktales

    Paperback Ï Irish Folktales eBook Ì irish ebok, folktales mobile, Irish Folktales Kindle “In the old times people had no envy and they would be writing down the stories and the songs for one another But they are too venomous now to do that And as to the people in the towns they don’t care for such things now they are too corrupted with drink”This was not what I had hoped The introduction was interesting to me with its history of Irish storytelling and the individuals who worked hard to bring us

    Paperback Ï Irish Folktales eBook Ì irish ebok, folktales mobile, Irish Folktales KindleAs a basic guide to Irish folklore you could do a lot worse than this The introduction gives a nice overview of the history of folklore collection and its development from the early days of good old T Crofton Croker to the current folklore collection in UCD Then a marvelous selection of stories big and small from all over the country from the many collectors and of many varieties If you're reading this kind of thing you have to make allowances for the repetitions that arise from oral telling which translates poorly to the written form but enough of the stories come perfectly formed whether through the work of the collector or the skill of the teller to arouse nothing but respect and admiration There's a long version of the the old Ki

    Paperback Ï Irish Folktales eBook Ì irish ebok, folktales mobile, Irish Folktales KindleIt was interesting to read this compilation of folk tales which were nicely divided into sections I picked up the book at my library to get a better idea of the Fenian tales and most enjoyed that section But it also was interesting to read the range of other tales including faith stories wit often outwitting a priest or a rich person ghost stories fairy stories and some from old history It was interesting to see a Cinderella like story in there as well The stories were collected over a long period of time and many retain the wording of the original story tellers giving the reader a sense of some of the collouialisms Often several stories in a row were about the same general topic making it a little bit dull but also a place of easy compa
