The aim of this book is to retell that part of the myth-history of early Ireland which deals with the Tuatha De Dannan, or Fairies. The author has tried to preserve the temper of old Irish writing in both thought and form, to retain as much of the original beauty of phrase and imagery as is consistent with coherent narrative. Contents: The Landing of the Dedannans The Birth of Bres The Unjust King The Flight of Bres The Healing of Nuada The Marvelous Cow The Story of Ethne The New Champion Preparations for Battle The Second Battle of Moytura The Dagda and His Harp The Journey of Ith The Passing of the Dedannans Pronouncing Glossary
