Welcome to a Treasury of Irish Tales


Welcome to the “Ireland’s Eye” Blog and webpage.

You are about to enter a world of mystery and suspense, humour and sadness, joy and disappointment. These are stories of Ireland; its people, places, customs and the darker side of Irish folklore. People with strange nicknames such as Bisto, Badger, Greensleeves and Swan Neck. Strong minded women and men who will not stand back and let others trod upon them. You will visit great woodlands, wild rocky shores, beautiful and peaceful lakes, and quiet villages that are filled with the trials and tribulations of their inhabitants. You will also meet some of the spirits that inhabit the night- time, the mists, the hills and the glens of this small, beautiful and mysterious island of Ireland.
