Heritage Guide 22 – Oweynagat – The Cave Of Cruachain: An Entrance To The Otherworld In Co. Roscommon

5.00

Written by Tom Condit and Fionnbarr Moore, this heritage guide is an excellent way for you to make your acquaintance with the enigmatic monument of Oweynagat, (Uaimh na gCat), the Cave of the Cats.

This unique monument, comprised of a man-made souterrain attached to a limestone cavern, is very interesting from a geological point of view, but it is the epic literature that truely brings the cave to life.

Complete with a reconstruction drawing of the monument, this should be your first port of call before visiting ‘Ireland’s Gate to Hell’.

Ancient Folk Tales of Ireland

Ancient Folk Tales of Ireland

(by Douglas Hyde, illustrated by Paul Bolger)

Over one hundred and twenty years ago a young man set about collecting Irish folk tales before they were lost forever. He taught himself Irish so that he could write the stories down as they were told, by storytellers beside the fire, word for word.  Ancient Folk Tales of Ireland contains six of those stories, each brought to life with stunning illustrations.

That young man was Douglas Hyde, he would become one of Ireland’s finest scholars, working to preserve Ireland’s ancient heritage for future generations. In later life he would become Ireland’s first president but he is equally remembered for the wonderful stories he helped to keep alive.

Beautifully illustrated by Paul Bolger, this collection is based on those stories collected by Douglas Hyde.
