3.0 out of 5 stars Ghost horses, pig-men and things that go bump in the night...on the poitín maybe?, 28 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book was first published in 1914 so the language is very much reflective of its time; a bit formal etc, so don't get this expecting lots of terrifying, salacious descriptions, it is quite matter of fact about each tale and told in the third person but still creepy. I enjoyed reading this, although the main reason I chose it was because I had hoped it would talk about exact locations of the ghosts and their myths as I live in Ireland and thought it would be intresting to know more about local legends. Sadly this was not the case as it only points to whether the story comes from the northern half or southern half of the island, and the names of the 'witnesses' are not printed, I suppose because back then people didn't want to be know for sounding crazy!
I liked the story about the ghost up a chimney and how all the locals gathered outside being nosey when the priests came only to be terrified by a figure with some kind of pig head running from the house.
