Unpleasant traditions — 1 Comment

  1. There was a few attempts to collect folklore. The folklore commission went out and collected stories but the primary schools had the kids write up the stories they’d heard at home.
    What I find interesting is that the stories survived at all given the various agendas pushing and pulling them, but like with the Icelandic Sagas that were thought nowt more than fanciful tales and turned out that the core, valid. I think when the embellishment is stripped back we’ll find much historical in the Irish folklore also.
