With his fancy-free tone and a charming Irish lilt, Liam Gerrard has a great time reading this entertaining collection of classic Irish folktales, tall tales, and poems. All are centered on the larger-than-life exploits of the ancient clan leader, seer, and poet Finn MacCool. Finn is credited with building the Giant's Causeway, marauding with Druids, and eating the Salmon of Wisdom. Knockgrafton, Cuchulain of Muirthemne, the Gilla Dacker, and the Ninepenny Fidil--these wonderfully fun and evocative names and titles happily roll off Gerrard's tongue and suggest a lost world of fairy queens, changelings, and mischief. Additionally, Gerrard's performance of the "Lament of the Last Leprechaun" will bring tears to listeners' eyes. A fine introduction to the stories and sounds that have created the Irish mystique.
