About this title


Discusses the mythological heritage of Ireland that lives on in folk tales, literature, place-names, language, ceremonies, and monuments, and surveys the mythic and sacred sites in Ireland's four provinces


Michael Dames, distinguished archaeologist and art historian, has reached into each other Ireland's parishes for stories, legends, architecture and art to write a beautiful book. What he writes is not the usual tourist information or a geographical summary. Region by region, historical period by period, a mosaic of Irish life and customs creates a mythic whole. From mysterious runes to the Book of Kells, word pictures and photographic material create a well-defined Ireland. -- Acts and Activities, January 1999
