Fadó
Tales of Lesser Known Irish History
by Rónán Gearóid Ó Domhnaill

With Fadó, long forgotten about episodes from Irish history are presented in easy to follow short chapters.

Who was Crom Cruach and what are Holy Wells? Who were the priest catchers and why were corpses stolen? How did a Cork woman become a feared pirate of the Caribbean and why is William Melville not loved by all in his native county?

For such a small island, Ireland has history and archaeology in abundance and much of this is often only known to people in the locality. The author has travelled the island extensively and researched long forgotten characters and events, some of whom are stranger than fiction. Irish men and women of all hues and generations are examined here as the reader is guided through a land of heroes and villains, saints and scholars, pestilence and prosperity.

Fadó is a book that can be read with ease and the author’s passion for his subject is infectious. It is a must read for anyone interested in Irish history.
