How did the lady of Dunluce Castle react when the kitchen fell into the sea while the cook was making dinner? Why did Finn McCool build the Giant’s Causeway and where did he hide when the giant Cuculan wanted to fight? Northern Ireland is full of fairies and fun, witches and wizards, myth and mystery and lots of scary ghosts. Here the award-winning storyteller, Doreen McBride, who learnt stories at her grandmother’s knee, retells some of favourite tales that are associated with her homeland.
