In ancient Ireland mythology and folklore were part of the general knowledge about each tree. This book gathers the myths, legends and folklore associated with the native Irish trees. The folklore has two main themes: the tree as a marker of important places such as a royal site or holy well, and the role of different trees as sources of magical power in folk customs and superstitions.
