Irish Mythology

St. Patrick's Day is March 17th- but have you ever wanted a deeper look into Irish myths? We have some great children's stories that will feed that hunger.

Fin M'Coul

Fin M'Coul is an Irish folk hero, known for many things, among them building the Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland. This book follows his tale.

Tim O'Toole and the Wee Folk

Tim and his wife are very poor, so he goes to look for work and chances upon the wee folk. They bestow him with a gift, but can he keep that gift away from the McGoons?

The Irish Cinderlad

This story is about Becan, a herd boy who goes off to make his way in the world, and must accomplish three different tasks with some help from a friend. It's for kids who are a bit older. It has some similarities to Cinderella stories!


The Children of Lir

A long time ago, there lived King Lir and four children. Their stepmother, the king's jealous wife, changes them into four swans, and they cannot change back "until the Man from the North shall be joined to the Woman from the South."

Daniel O'Rourke

Daniel goes to a great party and gets swept up in a perilous journey on his way home! Why are all these bad things happening to him?

We have other books about Irish mythology and heritage if you want more. Happy St. Patrick's Day! Erin go Bragh!
