Kerry Folk Tales

A vibrant collection of local tales hand down through generations of storytellers. Named after the peoples of Ciarraige who inhabited the ancient territory, Kerry possesses a rich tapestry of history, legend, and folklore unparalleled to many others.

In this book, authors Gary Branigan and Luke Eastwood narrate a variety of myths and legends that will take you on a journey through Kerry's past. Many of the stories have been handed down from generation to generation by local people and reveal old customs and beliefs filled with superstition, while others are more modern, showing the continuance of the Irish traditions of the seanachaí and of Irish storytelling.


Reviews

Kerry Folk Tales, a new book on Kerry folklore and history that is set to be released this month, is full to the brim with interesting and quirky snippets that should delight students of history here in Kerry. Authored by Gary Branigan and Luke Eastwood, the book also covers as much of the history of Kerry that the authors could dig up - from pre-Norman times, the Geraldines, the famine, the civil war and right up to things such as Charlie Chaplin coming to Waterville.
