Ó Cheann Ceann na Bliana Nósanna an Fhéilire in Éirinn by Conchúr Mag Eacháin

In this book, the customs related to certain days of the year are described, and a collection of folk tales collected by school children in Ireland in the thirties of the last century (Bailiúchán na Scol) is the main source of that commentary.

Local festivals and patrons are covered along with legends and certain holy wells. There are also a number of photographs of the relevant wells along with maps of the trips made on the major festivals.

There is a profound richness to be felt in the customs of the Irish calendar.
