Leitrim has a rich heritage of myths and legends which is uniquely captured in this collection of traditional tales from the county. Discover the burial place of the mythical hunter-warrior Fionn Mac Cumhaill, the sites where holy saints once trod, and the places where ordinary people once encountered devils, ghosts, fairies, and changelings. In a vivid journey through Leitrim’s varied landscape, from its rugged mountains to its bogs and loughs and along the mighty Shannon river (said to be named after the granddaughter of Manannán mac Lir, the god of the sea), local storyteller Susie Mino takes the reader to places where legend and landscape are inseparably linked.
