Thread Name: folklore: Macananty 'King of the Fairies'
Subject: RE: folklore: Macananty 'King of the Fairies'
The person who gave me the story was Samuel Curry snr (now deceased) he was in his late eighties when he told me re remembers the 'master' in school reading from a book, stories of Macananty. The book then was very old but the whole book was on Macananty's life, love (as told in 'Songs of the County Down') and battles with other fairie folk.
I have searched for this book that the 'master' was reading from but alas to no avail!
