Profile Picture

Leprechauns and Irish Folklore by Mary Pope Osborne and Natalie Pope Boyce contains a lot of fun and interesting facts about the Celts and the old legends of Ireland. It addresses historical events that have affected Irish folklore, such as how Christian monks came to Ireland and documented many myths, how English heritage almost wiped out Irish folklore, and how if it weren't for people like Douglas Hyde and Lady Gregory, the amazing legends of old might have been lost. Most of all, this book tells of fairies, all kinds of fairies, such as leprechauns and banshees.
