THE PHYNODDERREE - Illustrated Children's Stories from the Isle of Man
This volume rescues from oblivion a few of the Manx legends which are related in full:
- Mona's Isle,
- the Phynodderree, or the Hairy One (from whence this book obtains its title),
- Tom Kewley and the Lannanshee,
- King Olave The Second and the Great Sword Macabuin, and
- the Buggane's Vow.
In the course of conversations on the lingering belief in Fairies, a regular attendant at a local Church, and a well-to-do farmer expressed his implicit conviction that such people as fairies did frequent the Glen in which he lived. In reply to the question, "Have you ever, in your life, seen a fairy?" he replied, "No! I can't exactly say I ever saw one; but I've smelt them often enough."
