Irish Ghost Tales: And Things that go Bump in the Night

Front Cover
History Press, Oct 5, 2015 - History - 192 pages
Do ghosts exist, do supernatural beings walk the land and do creatures linger in the shadows. Are legends of blood-sucking creatures based on some truth found on the edges of reality? Within these pages Tony Locke will take you on a journey through the magical land of Erin. You will explore castles and graveyards, and be introduced to banshees, warlocks, spectres, poltergeists and the Undead. You will read about the spirit of a child that possesses a doll, the vengeful druid who guards a tomb and the ghost of a cannibal woman who enjoyed eating children. Based on the myths and legends of Ireland, these tales have been collected and retold by professional storyteller Tony Locke. So why not pull up a chair and sit awhile? You know you’re never too old for a story.
