Sale price€8.99


One of Ireland's leading folklorists gives a lively account of some of the more widespread superstitions and folk beliefs in the country. Here is a list of good-luck charms, spells, sooth sayings and other irrational but charming and creative folk beliefs. Here we have leprechauns and sprites, ghosts, the evil eye and wise women's curses. There are charms and spells to make the crops grow, to keep cattle healthy, to ensure safe childbirth and many other longed-for desires. Most superstitions are of pagan origin: many were overlaid with popular Christian belief. This edition is re-designed, re-formatted and bound in an attractive new cover.
