I'm hoping someone here might be able to help me out. I'm working on an essay about the peat bogs in Ireland--it's sort of a naturalism meets philosophy meets travelogue piece--and some of the feedback I've gotten on it is that it could do with more storytelling to balance out the philosophy. I've been looking for some good folktales featuring bogs in some way but so far not coming up with too much. So I'm asking if anyone here knows any good folk stories from Ireland that might work in a piece like this. I prefer to have print sources to web sources if I'm going to be citing something (but I'll take what I can get). Any book recommendations? Also, any general folklore about bogs is more than welcome.
Thanks to anyone who's able to help!
LOL, I have to giggle about this.
It sounds like an interesting essay!
Are they those bogs that Celts would throw valuables into to appease the Gods and such?
