A fascinating feast of spellbinding tales told in a spirited and interesting way. The stories deal with the adventures of kings’ sons, enchanted islands like Inishbofin, and witches and giants like Balor of the Evil Eye. Mermaids and subterranean people have their place in the lore of our coastline. These people are said to be descended from the Irish Sea-God, Manannan Mac Lir. [Mercier Press]
