About the Book

Paddy Flynn, a little, youthful elderly guy, told me many of the stories in this book. He resided in Ballisodare, County Sligo, in a leaky, one-room hut.No matter what one questions, one never doubts the faeries because "they stand to reason," as a man with an Indian mohawk tattoo on his bicep puts it. Even in the rural areas of the west, there are some sceptics.Minorities do not exist in the tiny towns and villages. Every man is a class unto himself, and every hour presents a fresh obstacle. The illiterate masses don't care about us any more than the elderly horse staring through the local pound's fence does. They claim, "These are ghosts."A "strong farmer," or a "knight of the sheep," as they would have called him in Gaelic times, resides in Cope's mountain. He is a man of might in both words and acts, proud of his lineage from one of the Middle Ages' fiercest clans. According to legend, the Faery People live in a cave beneath damp sea sand, surrounded by black rocks. The girl observed a strong light coming from the cave and several little figures dancing to music while wearing mostly red costumes of various colors.

About Author

W.B. Yeats

Irish poet, playwright, and author William Butler Yeats (13 June 1865 - 28 January 1939) is regarded as one of the greatest authors of the 20th century. William Butler Yeats, an Irish poet, was born in Sandymount in County Dublin. His father was a member of the Butler of Neigham (pronounce it Nyam) Gowran family, who were derived from The 8th Earl of Ormond's half-brother. He wed Susan Mary Pollexfen, a wealthy merchant family's daughter. Yeats joined the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn as a result of his fascination with the occult and mysticism. Due to her background of revolutionary political involvement, Gonne might not make a good wife. Iseult Gonne, who was 21 years old at the time, was Maud's second child with Lucien Millevoye. Yeats wed Georgie Hyde-Lees (1892-1968) in 1917; they had two children together. Yeats received the Nobel Prize in Literature in December 1923 "for his continually inspired poetry, which expresses the spirit of an entire people in a highly beautiful manner." On January 28, 1939, he died in the Hotel Ideal Séjour in Menton, France, at the age of 73. After a discrete and quiet funeral, he was laid to rest in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin.
