IN no part of the British Isles has the belief in the existence of Fairies retained a stronger hold upon the people than in the Isle of Man. In spite of the tendency of this “matter-of-fact age” to destroy what little of poetry, romance, and chivalry education has left to us, there lurks still in many countries, and especially in mountainous districts, a half credulity in the supernatural.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, andthe Buggane's Vow.Many legends of good, and evil, Fairies are still related by the country people of Mona's Isle; and those who care to inquire into the habits and customs of the Manx cottagers will see and hear much that will reward their curiosity. It is not the mere excursionist, visiting the Island for a summer holiday who will ever learn or see anything of these customs, but those who branch off the high road and venture into the recesses of the mountain districts.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.'So curl up with this volume in a comfy chair for just as this book brings you enjoyment and mirth, be assured that your purchase will have also helped someone somewhere, for 10% of the publisher’s profit is donated to charity.YESTERDAY’S BOOKS raising funds for TODAYS CHARITIES------------------TAGS: phynodderree, tales, isle of man, fairies, good, evil, british isles, poetry, romance, chivalry, supernatural, manx, folklore, fairy tale, myths, legends, children’s stories, bedtime, Mona's Isle, Tom Kewley, Lannanshee, King Olave II, Great Sword, Macabuin, Buggane's Vow, island, glens, dales, summer holiday, kitty kerush, gnomes, elves, pixies, waterfalls, Caverns, rocks, harbour, butterfly, fairy love, Ramsey, North Barrule, St Maughold, Sulby River, Ballure, Glen Aldyn, Billy Nell, William Kerruish, Mrs. Joughin, Douglas, Castletown, tailor, farmer, fairy mannikin, Grand Monarque, Uddereek, Magher-Glass of Glen Rushen, Estella, elfin, Snaefell, Pennyphot, Grebah, Ellan Vannin, court of the fairy king, banish, satyr, hairy one, Ballasalla, Fairy Cup, Kirk Malew, church, Castle Rushen, Peel, Port-le-Mary, Philip Caine, pedlar, Cuttar Mc Culloch, Enchanted Castle of Barrule, terrible magician, kelpie, staff, Richmond Hill, light of the moon, night, burnished silver, harvest moon, tanrogans, scallops, scollops, Mount Murray, Ballalona, curragh, elfin’s ride, the fay’s song, Ballagaraghan, curmudgeon, goblin, imp, manx fleet, Edgar, king of England, Prince of Seamen, Olave Goddardson, royal sceptre of Man, Loan Maclibhuin, dark smith of Drontheim, baron, Jarl Kitter, Viking, Calf of Man, hunt, oda the witch, retainers, Kitterland, Kitter's Island, rowan tree, tynwald hill, mount, House of Keys, norsemen, St. Germain's, Peel Castle, raven, Hiallus-nan-urd, Emergaid the Fair, St. Trinion’s Church, William the Norman, Irish diamonds, Grebah Mountain, Jarl Haco, Grebah Castle, potteen, on the rocks, Saint Trinion, wrecked, wind, broken mast,
