Kildare Folk Tales, Paperback / softback Book

Kildare Folk Tales Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


County Kildare abounds in folk tales, myths and legends and a selection of the best, drawn from historical sources and newly recorded local reminiscence, have been brought to life here by professional storyteller Steve Lally.

Included in this collection are the exploits of the Wizard Earl of Kildare who lived at Maynooth Castle, the legend of the lonely 'Pooka Horse' said to dwell amongst the ruins of Rathcoffey Castle, the story of St Bridgid, the patron saint of County Kildare, and the tale of the time the Devil decided to make a house call.

Full of wit and wisdom, these tales tell of the strange and macabre; memories of magic and otherworlds; and proud recollections of county heroes such as Dan Donnelly, Ireland's first Heavy Weight Boxing Champion.

The captivating stories, brought to life with unique illustrations from the author, will be enjoyed by readers time and again.
