    One thought on “Irish Fireside Tales: Myths, Legends, Folktales”

    1. This is essentially a gift book of folk and fairy tales taken from other collections with a few color photos of lovely Irish scenery plopped right in the center. The storytellers make or break the tales. Lady Gregory - enpedia/wiki/Augusta, - should be beaten around the head with a shillelagh for taking interesting stories and drowning them in unnecessary genealogical information. Here's an example:At the time Finn was born his father Cumhal, of the sons of Baiscne, Head of the Fianna of Ireland [...]

    2. Wonderful. The only reason it doesn't have 5 stars is the (somewhat poorly translated) language, a few jarring moments where I thought "I could have written that better" but otherwise a spectacularly fun read. (though honestly, the folktales were the best part of it, with the myths and legends too 'three year old boy single-handedly defeats three entire armies then goes mad' mythic. *shrugs* Which is good, actually, and I'm sure they were intended to be this way, it's just not my cup of tea. And [...]

    3. A nice collection of Irish fairytales, folk tales, and myths. This slim volume contains many of the elements common to all fairytales: witches, enchantments, trials, animals that speakeven the gruesomeness (blood and gore).Irish Fireside Tales is a fun little volume of stories collected from publishings circa 1820's to 1900's with a helpful glossary of characters and places.I really enjoyed it as I have a fondness for fairytales (& especially those of theJacob Grimm andWilhelm Grimm variety) [...]

    4. I've been wanting to read some Irish folklore for a while now. Some of my ancestors were Irish and I'm very interested in their culture and history. I suppose that could be where I got my love for mythology, legends, and fairytales. The Irish are sort of known for their story telling. There were elements to some of these stories that I recognize from other fairytales, but mostly, they had their own Irish stamp to them. I can't decide which one is my favorite. It's interesting, though, to see pic [...]

    5. Most. Boring. Book. Ever.The stories are good. The writing is bad.If you know anything about Ireland and it's folklore, put this volume down and go get a real book.

    6. It was a fun read. The language was sometimes hard to get through. But the stories were well worth get through.
