"I would love to know where you acquired a copy of Fairy Tales from Donegal" by Seán Ó hEochaidh. I have been searching and only find it in libraries, not for purchase. Any suggestions?"

Oh, that's a hard one. I bought it at a Dublin bookshop during a trip to Ireland in 1986 (!). I couldn't swear to it 100%, but I'm pretty sure the bookshop was Hodges-Figgis:

As for where you can buy it now... you could try Hodges-Figgis themselves (http://www.hodgesfiggis.ie/). In your place, I'd probably try ABE (http://www.abebooks.com) and the various other online second-hand booksellers.

If you study Irish, it's a nice book because the stories are in both the original Donegal Irish *and* in Irish translation. I bought the book partly because I travelled through that part of Donegal (the owner of a hostel I stayed at near Slieve League actually read from it to his guests - especially the story about Cnoc Aine, which was quite close by!), and partly because I was studying Irish at the time and was eager to get some materials that weren't too "textbooky".

Best of luck in finding your own copy.
