Storytelling is a big part of Irish heritage. So many novelists, poets and playwrights love to indulge in storytelling, which is an inherent part of our people. Irish folklore is how we keep our culture going, passing down tales from one generation to the next. On this page, you’ll find all you need to know about the best myths and tales in the land.
Comhairle Bheal has been created to bring you an array of fables from years gone by. It used to be that stories were recited and transmitted from one generation to the next, and we want to keep the tradition going. After all, it’s a testament to our belief in banshees, leprechauns, fairies and changelings.
Our aim is to keep mythical creatures alive and well. From epic poems and literature to songs and prose, we share stories of all sorts of exciting creatures with you.
