This remarkable collection contains folklore relating to forts, raths and historic mounds, to lakes, rivers and wells, to haunted castles and houses, to banshees and the death coach.

The traditions Westropp presents have been collected by him from the mouths of the people and not from books or from the notes of others.

This volume will reintroduce his work and will restore his name to the respect and the affections of all those - in Clare and beyond - for whom folklore, tradition and popular culture are an important and ever-dynamic aspect of identity and cultural heritage.

Folklore of Clare

T.J Westropp

Thomas J. Westropp became fascinated by the variety and vividness of the innumerable folk tales still being recited by the country people of Clare. He collected these over the years and they have been re-published here.
