Wexford Folk Tales


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 past
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.
