Irish Myths and Legends Teeming with tales of whimsy and wonder, the myths and legends of Ireland define this rocky isle. Many of the narratives were created by the early civilizations of Druids and Celts as a way to explain the mysteries of nature, while others are just good stories, handed down through generations by the very best of story tellers – the Irish.

The Banshee is a mythical figure from Irish folklore that was said to be the sign of a death in the family. The word derives from the Irish “Bean Sí” meaning “the fairy woman.” As legend.

Even today, children still hear of some of these stories in school or in Irish fairytale books. We’ve picked out a few of our favourite Irish folklore stories that have been passed down for centuries.

Children of Lir. The Children of Lir is a well known legend that can be recounted by ay Irish school child and most adults too. Then there’s ring forts or raths that dot the landscape – ancient structures that over the years came to be associated in folklore as home to the fairies.

Dolmens (ancient megalithic structures) also feature strongly in Irish myths, with many being known as Diarmuid and Gráinne’s bed, or as graves for famous heroes.

During the reign of King Conchobhar Mac Nessa of Ulster, a baby girl was born to Felimidh Mac Dall, a chieftain and bard of the Ulaidh. Deirdre (/ ˈ d ɪər d r ə,-d r i /; Irish: [ˈdʲɛɾˠdʲɾʲə]; Old Irish: Derdriu [ˈderʲðrʲĭŭ]) is the foremost tragic heroine in Irish legend and probably its best-known figure in modern times.

She is known by the epithet "Deirdre of the Sorrows" (Irish: Deirdre an Bhróin).Her story is part of the Ulster Cycle, the best-known stories of pre-Christian Ireland. The following is a list of Irish mythological figures Mythological Cycle Tuatha Dé Danann Notable figures.
