Birds have been important symbols in our art and culture for thousands of years. In his latest book, Niall Mac Coitir draws together the myths, legends and folklore of Ireland's birds, both wild and domestic. He explores seasonal, cultural and symbolic associations and challenges us to look at birds as dynamic creatures that have influenced our society over the millennia. Written with imagination and enthusiasm, this mix of natural history, mythology and folklore will delight and enlighten all interested in the birds of Ireland.
