What's on my shelf
I couldn't possibly list everything, but here are a few books I'm using right now as I work on my novel-in-progress.
A Social History of Ancient Ireland by P.W. Joyce (two volumes)
Early Medieval Ireland, 400-1200 by Daibhi O Croinin
Medicinal Plants in Folk Tradition by David E. Allen & Gabrielle Hatfield
Native Trees & Forests of Ireland by David Hickie
Celtic Women, Women in Celtic Society and Literature by Peter Berresford Ellis
That's just a drop in the bucket. I'll share more later. I'm awaiting a book I recently ordered too called The Encyclopedia of Irish Spirituality. I looked at it in the library and found a copy on Amazon for $2.
If you have any resources on ancient Ireland, please share them!
