I am Tuan, I am legend, I am memory turned to myth . Niamh thoughtfully brushed her hair and gazed at the clouds from her window high up in her tower . It was a day like no other . Fionn spent his final days in the Shelly Place where he ended his life in Sligo bay . These are the opening lines from a few of the stories in this remarkable collection of myths and tales from the north west of Ireland. These stories have been handed down from parent to child, from teacher to student for centuries, and help to explain life s eternal mysteries.
