Roscommon has a rich heritage of myths and legends which is uniquely captured in this collection of traditional tales from across the county. Here you will find tales of Queen Maeve, the famous warrior queen who had a home in Roscommon, and the legend of the Giant Leabaigh’s Rock, along with stories of witches, hags, ghosts, and fairies. In a vivid journey through Roscommon’s varied landscape, local storyteller Pat Watson takes the reader to places where legend and landscape are inseparably linked.

Book Description The History Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Legend has it that the magical Tuatha De Danann came on the wind from Tir na nOg (The Land of Youth) and landed in Roscommon, on the Curlew Mountains. It was from here that they spread throughout Ireland and some say that it is they who created the soul of the Irish and who imbued all who came after with the Irish Spirit. They were hot-tempered, strong, brave, daring and often rash and many of their deeds are captured in this collection of tales from across the country. Also featured here are intriguing stories of a vanishing lake, Oilean na Sioga (The Fairy Island), and the miracles of St Kieran, along with darker tales of the battles of Queen Meabh, the Monster of Lough Rea, and the story of Betty of Roscommon, Ireland s first (and only) hang woman - not to mention the fantastical accounts of encounters with leprechauns, pookas, giants and banshees. Roscommon has as many stories as there are people travelling its roads, passed down from generation to generation, and a wealth of them are gathered together here in this unique volume.
