The Irish are tellers of great tales, or one could say, they are great tellers of tales. Either way, we are the beneficiaries of an extraordinary oral tradition of stories, wrapped in myth and magic, preserving an ancient narrative. Tales told by a fire - whether ancient tales of the Celtic gods, kings, and heroes told round an open campfire with a gathering of warriors or elders, or tales of the simple country folk told round a rural kitchen fireplace with a gathering of neighbors on a winter's eve - are vibrant expressions of cultural tradidion and lore.

It is a widely held belief, especially amongst the peoples of English-speaking nations, that the Irish have the “Gift of the Gab”. Samuel Lover’s LEGENDS AND STORIES OF IRELAND shows the utter truthfulness of this conviction. Herein you will find 20 of the most enduring classic Irish stories like: King O'toole And St. Kevin, Lough Corrib, A Legend Of Lough Mask, The King And The Bishop, Jimmy The Fool, The Devil's Mill and many more. After a recitation by Samuel Lover of a few tales at a dinner party, he was subsequently convinced to publish two of them in the Dublin Literary Gazette. The favourable reception of these tales resulted in Irish Stories and Legends, an exquisite and exceptional volume of Irish folklore. Prepared and collated with very few changes, Samuel Lover wanted to stay true to the original stories, so that the written story would enchant readers as though it were being presented in the vernacular. So, we invite you to download and curl up with this unique piece of Irish folklore, not seen in print for over one hundred and seventy years, and let the Gift of the Irish enchant and captivate you.
