If the name seems familiar, these tales about Darby O'Gill and his encounter with the fairies were adapted for a Disney movie, Darby O'Gill and the Little People. They tell the story of an Irishman whose cow is captured by the fairies - or "good people". In his determination to recover his property, Darby finds himself in the center of their home, the mountain Sleive-na-mon. Not wishing to remain a captive forever despite the cordial hospitality of his hosts, he escapes through a clever ruse and earns the admiration and friendship of their King Brian Connors. Now Darby O'Gill is a local hero and his adventures continue as he encounters leprechauns, ghosts and banshees under the skeptical eye of his wife Bridget and the local priest.
Includes: "Darby O'Gill and the Good People"; "Darby O'Gill and the Leprechaun"; "The Conversion of Father Cassidy"; "How the Fairies Came to Ireland"; "The Adventures of King Brian Connors"; "The Banshee's Comb".

Fun story with a wonderful narrator!
I don't often listen to a book more than once so probably not
I really liked the fairy King Brian Connors. He was entertaining and fun for me to listen to.
Brian Connors, king of the fairies.
I didn't know anything about the Disney version of this story so what really made this enjoyable for me what the narration. Anne Hancock was perfect! It's a joy to listen to a story where the accent is appropriate and the emphasis and timing is right on. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
