Patrick Conroy, a young American student of medicine in Dublin, decides to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the big city and spend a month in the quietude of the wild and beautiful Glencree Valley, County Wicklow. However, surrounded by local legends and myths, he is soon dragged into an ancient mystery that has haunted the village of Ballymoor for centuries. Set on the background of the tumultuous years preceding the War of Independence, and colored by Irish folklore, the Haunter of the Moor is a ghost story written in the style of Victorian Gothic novels.

Nice Try for bother the Author and Narrator
British attempted accents. The attempt at Irish and / or Traveler accents are painful. This must be an early attempt at narration. The mispronunciations of Irish place names is unforgivable.
Hard to say, The territory isn't new and a bit overdone. It certainly isn't memorable.
Seems to be an attempt to mix elements of Irish folklore with threads of Lovecraft with none of the charm of the former or dread of the latter. The writing seems to struggle to retain 19th century placement with modern language and expressions.
Nice try, but overall comes up short. Your mileage may vary.

The performance is fine, the story is cliche'
