    An entertaining collection of Irish tales.

    This anthology has a wee bit of everything Irish, from tales of folklore to stories of the contemporary Irish. Especially good are stories by Loree Lough, Mike Sackett, Shannon Katona and Lisa Kamps. Pick any story when you have only a few moments and want a great Irish read.
