A vibrant collection of local tales hand down through generations of storytellers

County Tipperary abounds in folk tales, myths and legends and a selection of the best, drawn from historical sources and newly recorded local reminiscences, have been brought to life here by local storyteller Aideen McBride.

Here you will find the lore of the Arra Hills and the Silvermine Mountains, tales of how rivers got their names, and the ancient history of kings and tribes of Tipperary. Alongside these you will also find stories of witches, dragons, ghosts and fairies and much more. From age-old legends and fantastical myths to amusing anecdotes and cautionary tales, this collection is a heady mix of bloodthirsty, funny, passionate and moving stories.

It will take you into a remarkable world where you can let your imagination run wild.
