Long forgotten but dramatic events from history have inspired fourteen short stories in this collection of new fiction from Irish writers.

Drawn by the authors’ imagination, these compelling stories reignite familiar historical themes once told through the satire of popular verse. Reinterpreted as an anthology, some tales are retold in their original setting while others are adapted for today's world.

A glossary of all the associated rhymes and brief biographies for each author are included at the end of the book.

Authors: R.A. Barnes, Maura Barrett, Jeanne Beary, Ilona Blunden, Phyllida Clarke, Eileen Condon, Nora Farrell, Majella Gorman, Patrick Griffin, Mary Healy, Orla Hennessy, Stella Lanigan, Rachel Nolan and Valerie Ryan.
