This is a charming little booklet filled with stories of the legends of Killarney published by the author and printed by the The Kerryman Limited of Tralee, Republic of Ireland. It measures 4-1/2"x7" and the cover art was rendered by Fergus O'Ryan. The booklet was likely made for the tourist trade as many of the ads are for hotels, bars, and various travel aids. The stories include, but aren't limited to: the origin of the Killarney Lakes, the legend of Muckross Abbey, O'Donaghue and the Devil; Fionn MacCumhal and the Welsh Giant, Tom Coghlan and the Leprechaun, The Maid of Ross, and The Sage of Innesfallen. 20 stories in all. 44 pages, plus ads at back. Clean as a whistle with just a tiny tear to side edge of back cover repaired by me with a tiny piece of archival tape.
