Berry, who lived his entire life in the West of Ireland, collected these tales from the people of Mayo and Galway. Mainly handed down by word of mouth, they tell of poor communities in a bleak and beautiful countryside where secret societies, man-hunts, smuggling, murders, wakes, and rebellion are rampant.

1842 (age 72). Bunowen, Louisburgh. Between the years 1910 and 1914 (and reprinted in 1927) he had a column in the Mayo News under the title Tales of the West - Recollections of my Early Boyhood. The column centered on tales he heard during his youth growing up in Mayo and described events from the Famine years such as the Doolough Tragedy. rnIn 1967, a collection of his stories were republished as Tales of the West of Ireland by Gertrude M. He died on 4 June 1914 and was buried in Mynish cemetery, Carna.

Tales of Old Ireland book. During the last years of his life he contributed these tales to a local newspaper in whose pages they lay forgotten until Gertrude Horgan discovered them in the 1960s and collected them in their present form. When I left down the book I had a deeper understanding of rural Ireland in the nineteenth century than I ever had before, because in Berry's tales it comes to meet the reader, open-eyed and unembarrassed. A marvellous book, readable, amusing and educative.

I loved the Irish folklore in this book.

Only disappointment was that the book, which I knew was used, but it came with a musty odor and some discolored (nearly yellowed) pages.

Haven't finished reading it but since the author is my great great grandfather I'm giving it five stars.

This book gives a great perspective of life, the tales told via oral tradition and the historical events of the 19th and early 20th century Western Ireland. Thoroughly enjoyed this book, it is an important written record. With much humor, beauty and wit, buy this book. I found an extremely old copy in LA Public Library Reference Dept. Glad to see I can now buy it here.
