More Irish Tales and Stories
If you’re searching for some tales on St. Patrick himself, who by the by was NOT Irish, but research concludes this saint’s origins point to south Wales, (specifically neath Port Talbot,) then look no further than that sweet leprechaun Tomie de Paola’s “Patrick: Patron Saint of Ireland.” It’s a wonderful collection of stories of a saint that returned to the land of his Irish kidnappers to convert them. Talk about forgiveness during the Lenten season!
And Tomie also has a slew of books that define the Irish picture book folk tale, namely “Fin M’coul: The Giant of Knockmany Hill”, “Jamie O’Rourke and the Giant Potato” and “Jamie O’Rourke and the Pookah.” Any of these are as grand as a fine Irish mist to charm your young reader.
