Best Irish Published Book of the Year 2022
In this people’s history of Ireland, An Irish Folklore Treasury, John Creedon introduces a fascinating collection of stories from the Schools’ Collection. This treasure trove of old stories, ways and wisdom, which could have been lost for ever, was collected by schoolchildren as part of a nationwide project set up in the 1930s to preserve Irish folklore. The result is an incredible arc of folk history that tells us about ourselves and how we lived long ago.
