We are thrilled to welcome a new writer to Podcasts.ie, though he has published many papers, this is the first book from Sligo writer Michael Roberts whose book The Cailleach of Sligo has just been published and brings together many of the favourite stories and myths from the Nortwest of Ireland that have travelled the world.  Michael is an anthropologist by profession so there is a lot to be learned, not alone from the stories he has included but in the detailed research he carried out and which he so generously shares with us.   As it is Halloween we not only bring you myths but we have a legend from Kilkenny in the 1320’s as we bring you another first time author, we have a Halloween special on The Calendar Road and we’re working on a new showcase and all before the weekend is out.  Watch this space !
