Before the arrival in Ireland of Christian monks in the fifth century, sagas, poems, and sayings were spread across the countryside by minstrels and storytellers. This is a book of some of the most heart-warming, ancient Irish wisdom, from the original Gaelic (although how old they are is anybody's guess). Some of the tales may be familiar, while others are truly lost Gaelic treasures.
