Invaluable to the first-time visitor, this book will also delight those already familiar with the county, as it is a personal account from one who remembers the years of the “troubles” and grew up on the terrifying ghost stories and mind-bending superstitions of the Sligo people of W. B. Yeats’ era.” (Amazon)
