about this item

Fermanagh‘s culture, heritage, characters and stories sets it apart from other places. Every mountain, tree, lake, stream, rock, stone and character tells a tale. There are the stories about "educated" ancient Irish pigs who understood three languages (Irish, Latin and English) and monsters that lurk under the surface of Lower Lough Erne, there are spooky tales of ghosts, such as that of a murdered stableboy said to haunt the stable of Tempo Manor and the strange glowing ball of light that has been seen at Castle Crom, which rolls around the lake and foretells of major events that will affect the whole of Ireland. And there are the "hints," or tall tales, that the locals love to retell. All these stories and more are featured in this collection of tales which will take you on an oral tour across the county.
