WEXFORD has a rich heritage of myths and legends
which is uniquely captured in this collection of traditional tales from
across the county that will immerse you in a Wexford that some say is
and others say is all around you still.
Discover the remarkable story of the 140-year-old-man who died a premature
death, the arrival of the antichrists (six of them) in Wexford, the dangers
of love potions and how two people came
back from the dead, together with tales of cluricaun lurechan, mischief,
mermaids, grave robbing and buried treasure.
Their origins are lost in the mists of time, but these stories, illustrated
with twenty line drawings, bring to life Wexford’s dramatic landscape
and are sure to appeal to both local and visitor alike. Wexford is a place
of boundless story and legend that reaches out to tantalise and intrigue
those hearing these stories for the first time.
