Publisher's Summary

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".

This author and narrator were new to me. I loved the story and thought the narrator did a fantastic performance. I remember hearing some bits of Darby O'Gill growing up and this book was a reminiscent listen of stories my grandmother told me. Very enjoyable and suitable for all ages.

Great tale of Irish and the fae

A true classic told by a wonderful narrator. Be ready to be transported to Ireland of yore with Darby and the little people. Multiple stories that are great standalone and yet together build a picture that is breathtaking. The stories are quick and entertaining and full of knowledge on how to deal with the little people and how to avoid their traps. Great fun for all ages.
