Mayo Folk Tales (Paperback)

£9.99

Synopsis

Those magic words `Once upon a time' have been spoken around the flickering flame of the turf fire by storytellers for thousands of years. In this book, author Tony Locke has gathered together the rich tapestry of stories that make up the folklore, myth and legend of County Mayo.



This book will take you on a journey through the rugged landscape of the west coast of Ireland, to its holy mountain, Croagh Patrick, and across the foaming waters of Clew Bay. Here you will read of Grainne Ni Mhaille, the Pirate Queen, the spectre known as the Fir Gorta who roamed the famine villages of west Mayo, the monsters that inhabit the deep waters of Lough Mask and the Matchstick Man of Straide. You will also read of the Love Flower and two young lovers, the land of eternal youth that is

Tir na nOg and the night of the Big Wind. So why not pull up a chair and sit awhile? You know you're never too old for a story.
