Karan Casey, formerly with Ireland's noted group Solas, performs a re-telling of the myth that inspired the moving family film, "The Secret of Roan Inish." Using traditional Irish instruments; uilleann pipes, the low whistle, the concertina, and the violin, as well as some of the purest, sweetest voices ever heard on a children's recording, the Seal Maiden is a wonderful bonus for parents who want their children to enjoy magical, imaginative stories and authentic Irish music.

An Irish Night Before Christmas
by Sarah Kirwan Blazek, Reading level: Ages 4-8

At Christmastime, things are a little different on the Emerald Isle. Instead of logs thrown onto the fire, we find turf blazing bright. Instead of cold eggnog spiced just right, the mother and father are enjoying their stout. You'll find no Donner or Cupid or Blitzen, but Ould Neddy the donkey and his small cart. Father Christmas with his Irish eyes twinkling, ushers in his seven elves and thus begins this humorous tale.

Irish Folk & Fairy Tales
edited by Gordon Jarvie

Emerging from a people with an absolute belief in 'the little folk', the fairy tales of Ireland are part of one of the richest folk literatures in the world. In this wonderful collection of stories by writers like Carleton, Yeats and Lady Wilde, a legion of fairy folk - giants, leprechauns, witches and mermaids - help, hinder, charm and terrify their mortal neighbours.

Told with the gripping delivery of a well-seasoned storyteller, this tale of a fifth-century Irish saint has the broad appeal of folklore while retaining the power to inspire religious awe. Publisher's Weekly.

I have been looking for a baby name book that actually has pronuncations of the Celtic names for quite some time. I can not believe how many baby name books list names without pronunciations. I mean, how are you supposed to know?

Valentine's Day in Ireland

All over the world, Valentine's Day is celebrated with flowers, chocolates and cards. But in Ireland, it's even more special. In 1836, a relic of St. Valentine was sent by Pope Gregory to the Carmelite Church in Dublin. Every year since then, on Valentine's Day, a casket containing the relic is carried in a procession to the high altar for a special Mass dedicated to young people and those in love. If you're lucky enough to be there, this little known Dublin church also sells Valentine's Day cards. But if you're like most young people, it's much more fun to give cards you've made yourself.
