Legendary Ireland
Myths & Legends of Ireland
Eithne Massey

Legendary Ireland recounts mythological tales associated with twenty-eight richly atmospheric sites around the country including Tara and Newgrange, the Giants Causeway, Rathcroghan, Howth Head, the Grianan of Aileach and the Béara Peninsula. The historical and archaeological facts and the folk traditions of each ancient site are explored.

Woven into these landscapes are tales of love and betrayal, greed and courage, passion and revenge, featuring the famous characters of Celtic lore, such as Cú Chulainn, the Children of Lír, Diarmuid and Grainne, Oisín, Fionn and the Fianna, Queen Maeve and many more.

In a world where many have lost touch with the land and their past, the legendary Irish landscape still survives and the stories are never quite over as long as there are people to tell them.
