Niall Mac Coitir provides a comprehensive look at the folklore, legends and history of animals in Ireland, and describes their relations with people, being hunted for food, fur, sport, or as vermin, and their position today. A final section, inspired by stories of animal transformation, looks at twelve animals and how we can enrich our lives by visualising ourselves with their special qualities. This fascinating and beautifully illustrated compilation of folklore, legends and natural history will delight all with an interest in Ireland’s animals.

Niall Mac Coitir’s book is a veritable encyclopedia on the subject and, rather than use photographs, the publishers have opted for original watercolours done by that excellent artist of the natural world, Gordon D’Arcy. Children will find this book entrancing, but so too will many adults.
Fascinating.
Fascinating and enlightening ... a beautifully refreshing book.
Lovingly illustrated by Gordon D'Arcy, whose stunning original watercolours bring the magic and wonder of these animals to life. A nice blend of natural history, mythology and Irish folklore, 'Ireland's Animals' is hard to put down.
This is a most informative book and highly recommended.
Beautifully presented.
