"From childhood I heard tales of ghosts, banshees, haunted castles, mischievous and friendly sprites, snatches of ballads, and political arguments.... It was not until I came to Dublin and met Standish O'Grady, A.E., and Kuno Meyer that I realized what a heritage waited for me in Celtic literature. I read every translation I could get, learned Irish, and betook myself to Gaelic Ireland where, by turf fires, I could hear the poems of the Fianna recited by folk who had heard the faery music and had danced in faery circles."
Here is a collection of wonderful tales from Ella Young's classic retelling of Celtic stories. These stories are selected from Celtic Wonder Tales, The Wonder Smith and His Son, The Tangle-Coated Horse, and The Unicorn with Silver Shoes.
