Irish Tales and Sagas

June 28, 2016

Ulick O'Connor's Irish Tales and Sagas

Read this little collection, with beautiful watercolour illustrations, as research. Along with Ida Grehan's Irish Family Names.

It is wonderful to read stories of characters, their trials and tribulations, springing directly from place. Acknowledging that the land comes first, and then the people, who make up stories to explain, to cement their connection.
