Padraic Colum Reading His Irish Tales and Poems

Padraic Colum Reading His Irish Tales and Poems

Padraic Colum (1881–1972) was an Irish poet, novelist, dramatist, biographer, playwright, children’s author, and collector of folklore. In 1965, he recorded two of his stories and ten poems for Folkways. The opening story tells of a visit to Blarney Castle, home of the fabled Blarney Stone. His second tale is the fable of Gerald, the Earl of Kildare, who became the Wizard Earl riding a horse with silver horseshoes every Midsummer’s Eve. The liner notes contain the texts of the stories and poems.
