    "Enchanting"

    An enchanting collection of traditional Irish folk tales. Maura O'Connell does a fine job in reading them. The only flaw I found with this program was that the music played between the stories was louder by far than the rest of the recording. By turning down the volume I regularly missed the title of the next story. But this is a minor problem and I can still wholeheartedly recommend this collection to anyone interested in Ireland and its stories.
