Micí Bán Ó Beirn was a fiddler, poet and seanchaí from the Cill Charthaigh area of Donegal. Bríd Ní Bheirn, a local school mistress, realising that the language and the oral culture were in decline, took down these stories from Micí Bán in 1930. The stories lay idle for some time afterwards until her sister, Maireád, in turn passed them to Mícheál Mac Giolla Easbuic that he might edit and compile this publication. There are twenty five stories in total in the book, as well as some triads, the proverbs ‘Na Seacht nÓg' and a piece of poetry by Micí Bán entitled ‘Turas ar Chill Charthaigh'.
