About This Book

Fermanagh's culture, heritage, characters and stories set it apart from the rest of the world. Every mountain, tree, lake, stream, rock, stone and character tells a tale. There are the strange stories of mythical creatures, such as the Shining Folk that lurk under the surface of Lough Erne, and the fairies that taught the unruly wee Meg Barnileg a lesson. There are spooky tales of the Cooneen poltergeist that haunted the Murphy family and the ghost of Belleek Pottery. And there are the ‘pants’, or tall tales, that the locals love to retell, such as the stories about ‘educated’ Irish pigs who understood three languages, talking horses or the pike who went ‘fishing’ for squirrels. All these stories and more are featured in this unique collection which will take you deep into the heart of this historic county.
