Folklore of Clare Book Cover (Hardback)

Folklore of Clare: A Folklore Survey of County Clare & County Clare Folk-Tales and Myths
by Thomas Johnson Westropp
Books Ireland, Feb 2001

These articles first appeared in the transactions of the Folk-Lore Society between 1910 and 1913. They are here reset, with their original few illustrations reproduced, to make a cohesive and fascinating book on folktales and myths up to the early eighteenth century as well as lore, encompassing banshees, fairy forts, ghosts, haunted houses, supernatural animals, spectral lands and cities, charms, magic rites, holy wells, and superstitions.   Westropp lived 1860-1922, always a tireless collector of such material. CLASP, as we always note, know how to make a book look like a book.
