Meeting the Other Crowd: The Fairy Stories of Hidden IrelandRegular price $15.95
by Eddie Lenihan (Author), Carolyn Eve Green (Author)
"The Other Crowd," "The Good People," "The Wee Folk," and "Them" are a few of the names given to the fairies by the people of Ireland. Honored for their gifts and feared for their wrath, the fairies remind us to respect the world we live in and the forces we cannot see.
In these tales of fairy forts, fairy trees, ancient histories, and modern true-life encounters with The Other Crowd, Eddie Lenihan opens our eyes to this invisible world with the passion and bluntness of a seanchai, a true Irish storyteller.
"Mr. Lenihan is one of the few traditional story-tellers--seanchai in Gaelic--still working in Ireland."
