‘OMG, where did you get this amazing book?” the niece Julia, who is on a visit from Montana, cries. She is perched up in the cottage loft where she sleeps, her blonde curls falling down . I climb up the ladder and join her.

I lift the book onto my lap. It’s a huge tome called In the Ould Ago: Illustrated Irish Folklore, written and meticulously illustrated by Johnny McKeagney, a grocer and undertaker from Tempo, Co Fermanagh.
