Stories of life and love from the Ballyclare area of County Antrim in the nineteenth century, with dialogue in the local Ulster-Scots.

The book was first published in Belfast in 1898 and in Toronto in 1899. The author died on the RMS Lusitania when it was sunk off the coast of Cork in 1915 by a German torpedo. This new edition includes a Foreword by Derek Rowlinson, an Introduction by Dr Crawford Gribben, and a linguistic analysis by Anne Smyth.

Ian Campbell Ross, Aileen Douglas and Anne Markey (Editors)
Dublin: Four Courts Press, 2010. 121 pages. Paperback.
Published in London only months after the Jacobite Rebellion of 1715, Irish Tales is an historical romance offering a Jacobite reading of early Irish history, culminating in Brian Boru's victory over the Viking invaders at the Battle of Clontarf in 1014. The love story of Princess Dooneflaith and Prince Murchoe, son of the high-king himself, is played out against a backdrop of efforts to unite the people of Ireland in resistance to the Danish tyrant Turgesius. Sarah Butler draws her historical materials from one of the best-known Irish-language accounts of the Irish past, Geoffrey Keating's Foras Feasa ar Eirinn (written c.1634), a major work of history that had not yet appeared in print, but which circulated in elite literary circles in Irish and English-language manuscripts. Irish Tales, then, stands at the nexus of Irish-language manuscript culture and English-language print culture in its exploration of the conflicting claims of the public and private spheres in contemporary life. This edition contains an introduction and extensive annotation, making Irish Tales readily accessible to scholars and students alike.
