The ghosts of Ireland are an integral part of the country's tradition and atmosphere. Stories are told of their presence in the old houses of Dublin as well as in the rambling, grandiose mansions. This guide contains 47 tales of such ghosts, ranging in time from the Middle Ages to the twentieth century.
Be intrigued by the banshee and the headless coachman, or phantom dogs and fearsome black cats. Picture shadowy figures going about their unfinished business, flitting along dim corridors. Imagine the strange death warnings — the culmination of a sound that resembles the wind, yet has the tone of a human voice. These are the ghosts of Ireland.
