YA Based on Irish Folklore for St. Patrick’s Day

I love Irish folklore. I mean, with the last name like Kennelly, how could I not? While my family is only Irish through association (we were the bad Irish, kicked out and sent down under to Australia for bank robbing. That’s not confirmed, but I like that story more than the alternative that the family just immigrated), I’ve always loved trying to connect with my deep Irish roots through story and folklore. And while I might not have realized it at the time, a lot of the YA I read has a lot of deeply set Irish roots. So here are some of my favorites most steeped in the legends of the Emerald Isle!
