In 1997, numerous reports of UFOs in the county of Roscommon reawakened a local interest in the paranormal and also inspired Irish journalist Dara deFaoite to write this probing and scholarly book on the subject. First published to critical acclaim in 2002 and recently updated, Paranormal Ireland is considered to be the definitive work on the supernatural phenomena of the Emerald Isle.
While Paranormal Ireland includes many chilling stories of hauntings, ghosts, poltergeists, UFOs, lake monsters, and strange animals lurking in secluded woods — as well as a listing of haunted sites throughout Ireland — it also reveals a rare insight into topics that science has consistently failed to explain.
deFaoite has produced a book with all the readability of fiction, but more shocking because it's true.
Dara deFaoite lives in County Kilkenny, Ireland, with his wife, daughter and two cats. He has worked as a journalist for Ireland on Sunday, the Sunday Business Post, the Irish Independent, and The Irish Examiner. A man with a long interest in the paranormal, he has spent many years rooting out the answers to mysteries often overlooked by his colleagues.
