"Darby O'Gill & the Good People" (along with "Ashes of Old Wishes" which was published more than 20 years later) is the basis for the 1959 Disney film "Darby O'Gill and the Little People" but it is so much richer than that charming children's film. It is a collection of fairy stories to be sure, but even more it is a celebration of Catholic Ireland, and the goodness and morality of the turn of the century Irish peasant.
If you can muster the accent, I urge you to read this book to your children aloud. They will never forget it.
Highly recommend to anyone actually!
It is just fun.
