Celtic Fairy Tales


Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.5 stars; 22 reviews)

Celtic Fairy Tales is a collection of 25 folk and fairy stories collected from Ireland and Scotland. At what I imagine is the Frontispiece, or the dedication page, is the phrase:
_SAY THIS /Three times, with your eyes shut_/
Mothuighim boladh an Éireannaigh bhinn bhreugaigh faoi m'fhóidín dúthaigh.
_And you will see/What you will see_
A loose translation of this Gaelic phrase is "I sense the smell of a sweet, enchanting Irishman around my dear homeplace."
