About: The author of this selection of tales is a professional storyteller. Here he presents stories of myth, magic, the supernatural and the all too natural from every corner of our county. West Wicklow is well represented with more than half of the content associated with locations on this side of the county. Most of these stories spring from the oral tradition that prevailed before the arrival of electricity.
