Publisher's Summary

Ireland has a rich folklore. Everyone knows about the fairy folk and leprechauns and many have heard of the fearsome banshee. There are also the usual ghost stories found in every old land. The stranger side of the Emerald Isle goes much deeper than that, however, with tales of phantom armies marching through the sky, sea monsters swimming in the waters around the island, and stories of strange powers and dark magic.
Indeed, these tales are not consigned to the past; many unexplained occurrences continue to happen, even today. Here is a sampling of some of Ireland's odder aspects. Hopefully, it will inspire listeners to learn more about Ireland's mysterious past and unusual present, and perhaps get them to visit Ireland themselves.
Weird Ireland: A History of Ancient Mysteries, Fantastic Folklore, and Urban Legends Across the Emerald Isle is part of an ongoing series by Sean McLachlan and Charles River Editors that includes Weird Scotland, Mysterious London, and more. This book offers a sampling of strange, unexplained, and just plain odd stories from Ireland that have fascinated people in and around the region for centuries.

Quite interesting

Enjoyed the various stories and their possible origins. The narration is good. All in all a nice hour of diversion.

Narration was very fast and hard to understand with poor articulation. Interesting stories, but overall not worth the purchase.
