This volume combines the many strands of Ireland's heritage: folklore, myth, legend and romance. It includes 350 substantial entries, in alphabetical order from Aban, a sixth-century saint, to weather, all with references to sources, a synopsis of relevant stories and discussion of their origin, nature and development." "So, from the misty lore of the Tuatha De Danann to the dramatic realms of saints and scholars and to larger-than-life figures such as Daniel O'Connell and Michael Collins, this book opens a window on Ireland the Irish."--BOOK JACKET+-+60678389364634ocn012162468book19850.66Ó hÓgáin, DáithíThe hero in Irish folk historyHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etcFolklore44012ocn050410347book20020.50Ó hÓgáin, DáithíThe Celts : a historyHistoryChronology"Celtic-speaking peoples were one of the most important population groups to spread across the ancient European continent. From 800 B.C. to 1050 A.D. their story is one of expanding power and influence followed by contraction and near-extinction." "Drawing on all possible sources of evidence, from archaeological remains of ancient Greece and Rome to surviving cultural influences, Daithi O. hOgain outlines the history of the Celts. He follows the evolution of their culture as it gained strength on its two-thousand-year passage westwards through Europe, through the upheaval of the early middle ages to 'twilight' and decline in the west." "The influence of the Celts is far more widespread than its fragmented survival in the outer fringes of western Europe indicates; this once important culture is still a vital component of European civilisation and heritage, from east to west. In tracing the course of the history of the Celts, O. hOgain shows how far-reaching their influence has been."--BOOK JACKET+-+587406603531310ocn022181514book19900.31Ó hÓgáin, DáithíMyth, legend & romance : an encyclopaedia of the Irish folk traditionEncyclopediasDictionaries2607ocn040683133book19990.77Ó hÓgáin, DáithíThe sacred isle : belief and religion in pre-Christian Ireland"The myths and legends of prehistoric Ireland have inspired writers through the ages, down to W.B. Yeats and Seamus Heaney in our own century, but what do we know of the realities of ancient Irish belief? Daithi O hOgain's book approaches the question by studying archaeological remains such as tumuli, stone henges and circular enclosures and analysing the rich materials that have been handed down both in the great cycles of Irish heroic tales and the humble but significant survivals of modern folklore, for instance the traditions associated with wells and springs. Drawing evidence from these varies sources, he arrives at a balanced picture of a society and its beliefs which have all too often been the subject of conjecture and fancy."--BOOK JACKET+-+02920660352373ocn041352409book19990.24Ó hÓgáin, DáithíCeltic warriors : the armies of one of the first great peoples in EuropeHistoryMilitary history"Europe seems forever to have been a vast battlefield, and never more so than in ancient times when the Celtic peoples ranged across its hills and valleys, plains and mountains, for about a thousand years. Even their name comes from roots that indicate 'to strike, ' 'combat, ' 'fighter, ' 'destroyer, ' and would have been used by themselves as a laudatory term reflecting their success in overcoming other peoples and spreading their power." "Certainly the Celts were warlike peoples, whose power expanded greatly for some centuries. At various times, and often coincidentally, they did battle and settled in regions as far flung as Asia Minor in the east to Britain and Ireland in the west, and from modern Germany in the north to huge tracts of Spain in the south." "And yet the story of the Celts is in many ways a sad and tragic one, as the author describes in a thoroughly researched, highly readable text. He relates how, for instance, from attacking the Greeks homeland and even marching on Rome they were eventually forced to fall back across Europe such that their civilization almost disappeared. Remnants of their culture have survived in parts of western Europe, but today it is only in the British Isles and the north-west of France that the Celtic languages can be discerned."--Jacket+-+54505776851516ocn046512971book20010.27Ó hÓgáin, DáithíHistoric Ireland : 5,000 years of Ireland's heritageHistoryPictorial works+-+54870159363241185ocn052285968book20020.18Ó hÓgáin, DáithíIreland : people and places ; a celebration of Ireland's cultural heritageHistoryGuidebooksPictorial works+-+57180159361097ocn011400061book19820.88Gold under the furze : studies in folk tradition presented to Caoimhín Ó Danachair1096ocn019391766book19870.88Ó hÓgáin, DáithíFionn mac Cumhaill : images of the Gaelic heroCriticism, interpretation, etc654ocn032738257book19950.56Ó hÓgáin, DáithíIrish superstitionsPopular guide to folk beliefs, old wives' tales and other spooky stuff from the Irish countryside from one of Ireland's leading folklorists+-+5628862625324411ocn043395588book19990.84Celtic-Nordic-Baltic Folklore SymposiumIslanders and water-dwellers : proceedings of the Celtic-Nordic-Baltic Folklore Symposium held at University College Dublin, 16-19 June 1996Criticism, interpretation, etcConference proceedings371ocn050937630book20030.82Ó hÓgáin, DáithíThe Celts : a chronological history+-+5874066035314ocn011972034book19820.74Ó hÓgáin, DáithíAn file : Staidéar ar Osnádúrthacht na Filíochta sa Traidisiún GaelachCriticism, interpretation, etc283ocn053031246book20030.82Ó hÓgáin, DáithíKennedy = Ó CinnéideGenealogy+-+0610862625324272ocn053031222book20030.84Ó hÓgáin, DáithíO'Connor = Ó Conchobhair+-+3200862625324272ocn053031092book20030.84Ó hÓgáin, DáithíO'Brien = Ó BriainGenealogy+-+2900862625324272ocn053031204book20030.86Ó hÓgáin, DáithíByrne = Ó BroinGenealogy+-+9000862625324272ocn053031177book20030.84Ó hÓgáin, DáithíO'Reilly = Ó RaghallaighGenealogy+-+7400862625324272ocn053031139book20030.84Ó hÓgáin, DáithíO'Sullivan = Ó SùilleabháinGenealogy+-+8700862625324121ocn784573313book20120.95Sean, nua agus síoraíocht : Féilscríbhinn in ómós do Dháithí Ó hÓgáinHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etc+-+6067838936+-+6067838936Thu Oct 16 15:43:19 EDT 2014batch18645
