These stories feature well known names like Fionn MacCumhaill, Oisin and Queen Medb to name but a few. We are lucky in Ireland to have a treasure house of legends and tales but many of the strange and odd stories have been lost over time. This book seeks to shine a light on some of them. Some good examples would be how Queen Medb was killed by a lump of cheese or how mad King Sweeney was turned into a bird.

There is the tale of the epic race between Iron-bones and the Bodach. In this book you will find out how the ancients divided the year into four, and how a bardic poem could kill ten rats as well as influence Shakespeare. This book will delight people of all ages.

Every entry is accompanied with full-colour illustrations by the author who takes us on a journey through an ancient Ireland almost forgotten.
