For generations, the Irish people have lamented the loss of their traditional culture, as well as the fading of their native language, practices, and beliefs. The deaths - and the protection - of tradition has been a common theme of Irish cultural life up to the present day. Moll Anthony of the Red Hill was a woman who allegedly had supernatural powers which enabled her to make potions which could cure paralysis, fits, strokes, and other sicknesses in humans and animals. It was said that she got the gift from the fairies. When Moll Anthony's individual cultural significance is considered, the lack of focus on her seems unacceptable. This is particularly true because her legend is located not in a western, Irish-speaking community, but in an English-speaking community within the Pale. For this very reason, Moll Anthony is significant in her own right, not only for the layers of traditions which contribute to her character, but also for her representation of undervalued or ignored traditions in the east. Moll Anthony provides an excellent case for the re-evaluation of the persistence of legend traditions and their associated beliefs in the east. In this book, the archetypes of the wise-woman and the cailleach are addressed, as well as Moll's connections to mother goddesses, such as Bo and Brigit. This demystifying of Moll Anthony is a case for the re-evaluation of tradition in the eastern counties of Ireland. (Series: Maynooth Studies in Local History - Number 94)

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.

During idyllic school holidays, Charles enjoys riding to hounds and hunting geese and snipe while his friend Tommy Marlin tells stories of Tir-nan-Og, the land of eternal youth that lies just beyond the bog. But when Progress arrives in the form of an English corporation determined to convert the landscape into factories and housing, it appears that an entire way of life is destined to vanish. Only one thing stands in the way: the sorcery of an old witch, whose curses the English workers do not even believe in. In the novel's unforgettable conclusion, the ancient powers of the wise woman will be pitted against the machinery of modern corporate greed, with surprising and thrilling results.

The Ireland of the Dark Ages inspired strange and marvelous legends that intertwined history and fancy. Today, these legends live on in the stories of wandering saints, who performed good works and miraculous feats on their travels throughout the British Isles and Europe. From well-known and beloved icons--such as Saint Patrick, who chased the pagans from the shores of Ireland along with the snakes, or Brigid, the wise woman of Kildare, who displayed a special gift for healing the sick--to the likes of Columba of Iona, David of Wales, and Aidan of Lindisfarne, "Celtic Saints" tells their stories, with each saint beautifully depicted in illustrations reminiscent of stained-glass windows.
