Kilkenny Folk Tales Anne Farrell Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

County Kilkenny abounds in folk tales, myths, and legends, and a selection of the best, drawn from historical sources and newly recorded local reminiscence, have been brought to life here by local storyteller Anne Farrell. Kilkenny is the place where, legend has it, St. Evin and St. Molin once had to have their dispute settled by a shoal of fish; where the infamous Countess of Ormond brought fear and terror to the people of Grannagh; and where an imprudent local man decided to find out if the supposedly bottomless "Kerry holes" would live up to their reputation. It is also said to be the home of a plethora of strange and magical creatures, and stories abound of encounters with fairies, ghosts, banshees, shape-shifters, and an army of cats who fought an epic battle near Dunmore Caves. From age-old legends and fantastical myths, to amusing anecdotes and cautionary tales, this collection is a heady mix of bloodthirsty, funny, passionate, and moving stories. It will take you into a remarkable world where you can let your imagination run wild.
