Were you like me and never knew your Irish grandparents? Did you learn Irish legends and myths when you were all grown up, long after you could truly appreciate the history behind them? Did you grow up with Disney as your only source of story telling? Sad isn’t it? What if I told you there are ten books for kids, all aimed at Irish history and it was told in an Irish accent? What if they were clear, humorous, fun and educational?
