Lady Augusta Gregory’s Irish Myths and Legends, or Gods
and Fighting Men as it was first titled in 1904, is an essential
collection of Irish myths, legends and folk tales gathered
by Gregory from Irish oral story tellers at the close of the
nineteenth century.

These epic tales are divided into two parts: the first charts
the coming of the mythic Tuatha De Danaan to Ireland,
the lives of Mananaan and Lugh, and the tragedy of the
Children of Lir. The second part follows the exploits and trials
of Finn Mac Cumhal, the Fianna, Oisin, and the love story of
Diarmuid and Grania.

This is a timeless collection of Irish myths and legends -
whimsical, tragic, astounding and ever familiar - borne
through the centuries, and an essential part of our literary
heritage.
