Re-formatted for Spring 2007 the ever-popular pocket guide series has been expanded in its attractive new format. Ronan Coghlan lists and describes over 500 gods, demons and giants, places, objects and events which feature in the fantastical myths and legends of Ireland. This handy little reference book will be invaluable to schoolchildren and students but will also appeal to anyone who wants to find out more about the Fianna, the Milesians, or the Tuatha De Danaan. Perhaps you are familiar with names like Ossian, Finn MacCool or Cuchulain but you know little of the stories behind the legends. This is a perfect introduction to Ireland’s myths. This work includes photographs throughout.
