Over the course of six online sessions in October 2020, seven young illustrators came together to creatively explore the myths, legends and folklore that have influenced the modern history of the island of Ireland.

With storyteller Cormac Ó Briain and illustrator Shannon Patterson, they dove into a world of Cailleachs and Kings, putting a modern twist on ancient stories and fantastical figures. Each of them has created an illustrated page in response and we hope the work they have created in this book will inspire people to revisit the folklore and myths of old.
