Fairy tales of Ireland Irish folktales and Celtic tales blend. Irish folktales were put down in writing in the 1800s, mainly. They are oral fictional tales of the Irish-speaking districts, originally told in various dialects about semidivine, dwarfish beings and persons they met, and other incidents. Some of these being have their roots in Celtic mythology. Some tales are retold. - T. Kinnes
