An enchanting collection of traditional Irish folk tales. Maura O'Connell does a fine job in reading them. The only flaw I found with this program was that the music played between the stories was louder by far than the rest of the recording. By turning down the volume I regularly missed the title of the next story. But this is a minor problem and I can still wholeheartedly recommend this collection to anyone interested in Ireland and its stories.

A lovely collection of traditional Irish tales, beautifully and simply illustrated by Niamh Sharkey, and complemented by Malachy Doyle's softly lilting Irish accent. The stories include: The children of Lir; Fair, Brown and Trembling; The twelve wild geese; Lusmore and the fairies; Son of an otter,son of a wolf; The soul cages; Oisin in Tir na nOg. This would be suitable as a book to read to younger children 4years and older, and were enchanting to an adult such as myself

What a wonderful book. Some of the stories reminded me a bit of todays fairytales. I loved the pictures and all the amazing characters. This will definitely be a book to share with the grandbabies.
