Leprechauns, Banshees, Sprites.

"This history sets forth the only true account of the adventures of a daring Tipperary man named Darby O'Gill among the Fairies of Sleive-na-mon"

These leprechauns, banshees, and other little people had long been feared by the good folk of the old Sod, always frightened that some curse or come hither might lead even the best of souls unto an exile in the fairy realm .

The denizens of the faerie realm have met their match in Darby, a plain spoken fellow wise to their ways .

He may not be able to hold onto their boon of three wishes or avoid being the butt of a joke or two , but he does earn the respect of their King and the chance to be merry with his friends from the enchanted realm of Sleive-na-mon.

This edition has been de-brogued for modern readers.

REVIEWS

Praise for Darby O'Gill

"Initially released in 1903, this novel is told through chapters that could be read individually as short stories. Set in Ireland, Kavanagh offers more of a light-hearted portrait of its people and their myths…fun."--Library Journal on Darby O'Gill

"Darby O'Gill and the Good People by Herminie Kavanagh…takes its place alongside C. S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia and Kenneth Grahame's The Wind in the Willows as among the twentieth century's greatest works of moral imagination. There's more poetry and magic here than in all the new fiction that will be released this year."--The Catholic Exchange on Darby O'Gill
