I'm glad to see this is becoming an annual event - as with last year's version, this is a short collection of stories centred around different elements from Celtic folklore and mythology. The stories based on Macha and An Dagda stood out as especially enjoyable, but the whole collection does a great job of blending both the traditional myths and more modern Irish culture.

It was a real page turner. Enjoyed every tale. There is writing competition mentioned in the end too.

It’s great reading these short stories particularly when you pressed for reading time. I enjoyed the mythology written in a modern context. The history behind each story provides real substance to the stories, it’s all so interesting and obviously well researched. I certainly recommend this collection.
