Modern tales of poltergeists in housing estates, phantom voices, ghostly nannies, white ladies and banshees – this isn’t the stuff of oft repeated folklore; these are freshly discovered ghostly tales from the people of Carlow. Just what was staying in Brown Street? Who is the White Lady? What kind of being did some Carlow students unwittingly end up sharing a house with? Just who was that old lady watching over the kids? You’ll find the answers within the pages of Haunted Carlow.
Ideal for the paranormal enthusiast, the local historian, the Carlow diaspora abroad and anyone who enjoys a good, scary story, Haunted Carlow is a book for everyone. All you need is to remain calm, don’t panic and remember it’s only a book
The stories are gathered by the men behind Leinster Paranormal, Cormac Strain and Danny Carthy. There is no lurid reportage; no narrative devices that try hard to evince a scare and fail. It is the almost conversational tone of the book that scares the most. As paranormal investigators, you get the feeling that this is all in a day’s work for them – but they’re never going to tell you the “juicy gossip” or speak about the people they help.
This style is a blessed relief in a genre that is saturated with clumsily-written, hackneyed accounts of local stories that just are not scary, spooky or even believable. This book is the perfect gift for lovers of local ghost stories, those interested in paranormal investigation, and those who like a good scare.
