KIRKUS REVIEW

For those who like Irish wit and whimsy, stories of long ago steeped in folklore and recounted in the colorful dialect of Ireland, this will be just right. This group of tales present Dark Patrick, a stout little black-haired man with a keen intelligence and an inordinate amount of mountain sense. Rascals and scoundrels are put to shame one by one by this ""homespun Daniel come to Judgment from Donegal"", affairs of state are solved, the poor and the humble are saved in a succession of delightful stories. Whimsical, charming, but for a limited few.
