Miraculous Plenty  
Irish Religious Folktales and Legends
Seán Ó Súilleabháin, editor.
Translated by William Caulfield
ISBN:  9780956562821
Comhairle Bhéaloideas Éireann 2011
294 lth.
Written in English.
For over fifteen hundred years, Ireland has been predominantly Christian. Religion has been a continuous force in various aspects of Irish life.  As one might expect, a rich body of religious folktales and legends – both fanciful and credible – were part of the repertoire of the storyteller.  Religious legends bring immediacy to traditions of the Holy Family, Saints and the Devil. The stories in this book offer moral guidelines for a Christian life. The tradition was never fully oral and the influence of religious literature and church institutions is evident.
The tales vary in subject matter and include specifically Irish saint-lore as well as more general tales of the Holy Family
