Wexford has a rich heritage of myths and legends which is uniquely captured in this collection of traditional tales from across the county.

Discover the remarkable story of the 140-year-old-man who died a premature death, the arrival of the antichrists (six of them) in Wexford and the dangers of love potions, together with tales of lurechan mischief, mermaids, grave robbing and buried treasure.

Their origins are lost in the mists of time, but these stories, illustrated with twenty line drawings, bring to life Wexford’s dramatic landscape and are sure to appeal to both locals and tourists alike.
