There’s more to Irish bird folklore than the ‘wran’ boys and the Children of Lir. Irish bird names are rich and full of meaning. This book focuses on our interaction with birds, covering mythology and folklore, birds as omens, harbingers and food, and bird-related beliefs, proverbs and curses. A species-by-species account gives a description and associated beliefs, culinary traditions, place names and a ‘Facts & Figures’ section.
