North of Ireland Folk Tales for Children

Author(s): Doreen McBride

Myth & Folklore

How did the lady of Dunluce Castle react when the kitchen fell into the sea while the cook was making dinner? Why did Finn McCool build the Giant's Causeway and where did he hide when the giant Cuculan wanted to fight? Northern Ireland is full of fairies and fun, witches and wizards, myth and mystery and lots of scary ghosts. Here the award-winning storyteller, Doreen McBride, who learnt stories at her grandmother's knee, retells some of favourite tales that are associated with her homeland. AUTHOR: Doreen McBride is a full-time author and storyteller, and a retired teacher. She has been NI Arts Council recognised and gained an international reputation as a storyteller, having appeared in storytelling festivals in America, New Zealand, Ireland, Scotland and England. Doreen was awarded a silver medal by the University Of South Carolina for services as Storyteller in Residence in 1993. She is a member of Children's Books Ireland (CBI) and lives in Banbridge. 30 b/w illustrations
