Irish Ghosts: A Ghost Hunters' Guide
The ghosts of Ireland are as numerous and interesting as they are varied. Indeed, there have been accounts of a man carrying a basin containing his severed head, a frightened girl whose hands are dripping with blood, and a body floating in blood-red water. It is also possible to hear the wail of a banshee, the sounds of mocking laughter, the din of battle, and the sound of someone choking, and many other sounds and experiences that bring a shiver to your spine. In this fascinating book, renowned ghost hunter, writer and parapsychologist Peter Underwood provides a practical handbook of over a hundred of Ireland’s most interesting and haunted places with details of the history, the people involved, expedient anecdotes, reported ghostly encounters, the frequency of paranormal activity and the available evidence together with the names of witnesses.
