Abstract: The research has identified some genres of folklore namely folktales, myths and legends in Irob. After identifying types of folklore, efforts have been made to trace some for the purpose of documentation and analysis focusing on theme. Emphasis has been given to legends and folktales because the availability of myths except the common Christian myths was not encouraging in the area of research. The themes of the identified genres were almost similar in their message. The overall penetration into the overwhelming hybrid of folklore and the themes that are depicted in the study are hoped to attract interested researchers in the field and teach lessons for the generations to come.
