Dublin is the perfect haunted city, with its narrow cobbled streets concealing layers of interwoven history and folklore, left behind by generations of Viking, Norman and Irish inhabitants. Walking through the streets of a dark October evening, as Halloween or Samhain grows closer and the moon slips behind some flimsy clouds, the 'other world' seems closer, more tangible.

Haunted Dublin brings together the city's most infamous hauntings with stories that have never before been seen in print, including some of the author's own chilling experiences. Meet phantom dogs in Dublin's suburbs, black cats and Satanists in the Dublin Mountains, and the headless ghost of Buck Jones, which haunts the streets around Croke Park.

From the murderous black pig that tormented 18th century city dwellers, to modern day poltergeists in Tallaght; from bodysnatching to banshees, Haunted Dublin will intrigue you... and scare the bejasus out of you.
