Myths and Legends of the Celtic Race
by Thomas Rolleston

A recounting of the Irish Mythological Chronicles

"I have several reasons for re-publishing this book at this time. The most pressing of these is that a "trendy" Britain, which now prides itself on becoming a "multicultural" society, is in danger of losing the sense of history, tradition, and "belonging" which maintains national cohesion and without which the values and customs in which we rightly used to take pride are being eroded to the verge of extinction. It is time we woke up to the fact that a "multicultural" society is no society at all. A nation whose people is ignorant of its cultural roots is no longer a nation in any significant sense, and is ripe for colonisation by alien ideologies and their attendant politicial, legal, and religious systems.

The process of severing the majority of the native people of Britain from their racial and cultural roots has been going on for nearly two millennia. When the Romans imposed their hegemony on most of what is now Great Britain, the great majority of the native people were of Celtic extraction and spoke a language that has now become Welsh. Ireland was inhabited by related, but different, Celtic stock who spoke a language that has now become Gaelic. Scottish Gaelic is only little different from Irish Gaelic, because it was introduced into Western Scotland by successful Irish invaders in the sixth and seventh centuries AD."

Meet the Author

"Thomas William Hazen Rolleston (1857 – 1920) was an Irish writer, literary figure and translator, known as a poet but publishing over a wide range of literary and political topics. He lived at various times in Dublin, Germany, London and County Wicklow; settling finally in 1908 in Hampstead, London, where he died.

He was born in Glasshouse, Shinrone, County Offaly, the son of a judge. He was educated at St Columba's College, Rathfarnham and Trinity College, Dublin. After a time in Germany he founded the Dublin University Review in 1885; he published Poems and Ballads of Young Ireland (1888), and a Life of Lessing (1889). In London in the 1890s he was one of the Rhymer's Club; he was to cross paths several times, and sometimes to clash, with W. B. Yeats. He was also involved in Douglas Hyde's Gaelic League.

He also spent time as a journalist, and as a civil servant involved with agriculture. He had eight children, from two marriages."
