Enjoy full list of Irish fairy tales now. About: Irish folklore and fairy tales were passed down through generations with an almost superstitious commitment to accuracy. Storytellers would gather in the evenings to tell the same tale, and if any person varied, they would put it to the counsel to determine which was the correct version. In this way, stories were recited and transmitted for hundreds of years nearly word for word. Of course, the Mythological Cycle contains the stories of gods and goddesses and how the Irish came to be. It is home to stories from the Golden Age of Ireland.
A blowgun also called a blowpipe or blow tube is a simple ranged weapon consisting of a long narrow tube for shooting light projectiles such as darts. It operates by having the projectile placed inside the pipe and using the force created by forced exhalation "blow" to pneumatically propel the projectile. The propulsive power is limited by the strength of the user's respiratory muscles and the vital capacity of their lungs. Many cultures have used this weapon, but various indigenous peoples of Southeast Asia , the Amazon and Guiana regions of South America , Western Europe and Guatemala in Central America are best known for its use. Projectiles include seeds, clay pellets, and darts.
Ireland has a rich heritage of folk tales and fairy stories dating back over thousands of years. Many of them concern great heroes like the legendary warrior Cuchulain, or the mythical giant Fin McCool. There are also great love stories like that of Fair, Brown and Trembling — the Irish version of Cinderella. Some have happy endings, but there are also tales of great tragedy such as The Story of Deirdre. Many Irish stories feature leprechauns and their magic, sometimes to comical effect as in the Field of Boliauns, but sometimes dark and sinister too.
