'I believed everything that my granny told me'

Monaghan woman, Mary Flora has written her first book of short stories entitled 'Where The Fairies Dwell'. Contained within its covers are stories of old - passed down over generations - by people that gathered around the fireside watching the dancing flames as they listened to the Sheanachai.

Mary, a retired midwife, said her grandmother told her the stories and she wanted a record of them for her own family. She pointed out that as the book began to come to fruition, it gathered momentum.

She has now created a magical and thought provoking piece of work that is guaranteed to entertain people of all ages. "My grandmother would tell me these stories and she had such a look of authority on her face.
