An Irish Folklore Treasury by John Creedon


In this people’s history of Ireland, John Creedon introduces a fascinating collection of stories from the Schools’ Collection. This treasure trove of old stories, ways and wisdom, which could have been lost for ever, was collected by schoolchildren as part of a nationwide project set up in the 1930s to preserve Irish folklore.

Published here for the first time, this ‘best of’ selection includes chapters on ghost stories, agriculture, forgotten trades, schooling and pastimes. The result is an incredible arc of folk history that tells us about ourselves and how we lived long ago.


John Creedon is one of Ireland’s best-loved broadcasters. He currently produces and presents The John Creedon Show on RTÉ Radio 1. He has also presented popular television series on RTÉ 1, including Creedon’s Wild Atlantic Way, Creedon’s Epic East, Creedon’s Shannon and several series of Creedon’s Atlas of Ireland. His first book, That Place We Call Home, was a bestseller.
