In 1935, the creation of The Irish Folklore Commission set in motion the first organized efforts of collecting and studying a multitude of folktales, both written as well as those of the Irish oral tradition. The Commission has collected well over a million pages of manuscripts. Folktales of Ireland offers chief archivist Sean OSullivans representation of this awe-inspiring collection. These tales represent the first English language collection of Gaelic folktales.Without doubt the finest group of Irish tales that has yet been published in English.—The GuardianOSullivan writes out of an intimacy with his subject and an instinctive grasp of the language of the originals.

He tells us that his archives contain more than a million and a half pages of manuscript. If Mr. OSullivan translates them, Ill read them.—Seamus Heaney, New StatesmanThe stories have an authentic folktale flavor and will satisfy both the student of folklore and the general reader.—Booklist
