  • The Kiltartan history book by Lady Gregory; illustrated by Robert Gregory.Maunsel & Co., Dublin 1909.“I have given this book its name because it is at my own door, in the Barony of Kiltartan, I have heard a great number of the stories from beggars, pipers, travelling men, and such pleasant company. But others I have heard in the Workhouse, or to the north of Galway Nay, in Connemara, or on its southern coast in Burren. I might, perhaps, better have called the little book Myths in the Making.” - Lady Gregory, page 49. Contents:O’Connell – Frontispiece (plate 1)The Ancient Times – page 1. Goban, the Builder – page 1.
