County Derry still abounds in folk tales, myths, and legends, and a selection of the best, drawn from historical sources and newly recorded local reminiscences, have been brought to life here by local storyteller Madeline McCully. Included here are stories of the great St Columba, founder of Doire Cholmcille; the Leap of the Dog, Leim na Mhadai, after which the town of Limavady was named; of the lovely Finvola, the Gem of the Roe; and the Nine Waves at Magilligan. There are also eerie stories of ghosts, fantastic tales of fairies and banshees, as well as recollections of superstitions, cures, and traditions. This collection is a heady mix of bloodthirsty, funny, passionate, and moving stories. It will take you into a remarkable world where you can let your imagination run wild.
