Annie Bhán was the sister of writers Seosamh and Séamus Ó Grianna so it is no surprise that she has a knack for storytelling. Her stories were first recorded and collected in the 1930s. This book contains a translation of the original version of the stories and an introduction to the oral and Irish tradition of the area.
