Tá an t-ábhar seo ar fad á chur ar fáil den chéad uair riamh in aon leabhar amháin agus tús áite ag togha scéalta agus cuntas na bpáistí agus a bhfaisnéiseoirí.
An account of Irish customs and their resonance.

The result of five years of study, this book describes Irish traditions observed on specific days of the year and draws mainly on the collection of folklore gathered by schoolchildren in Ireland during the 1930s. From St. Brigid’s Day to Christmas Eve, there isn’t a tradition or superstition that isn’t covered here.

This fascinating collection covers local festivals and patron days as well as the folklore surrounding saints and holy wells. From the viewpoint of folklore and tradition, Irish traditions during the calendar year are a treasure trove.
