Fascinating Wexford History Volume Two (Des Kiely)

Regular price €15,95

Tax included.

Another fascinating collection of County Wexford historical events, spanning twelve centuries. From Viking settlements in the early 9th century to the murder by the IRA of a Wexford garda—an All-Ireland hurling champion—in 1980. Brushes with the paranormal: an exorcism in Killinick that caused a child’s death. A case of witchcraft in Wexford town—and a visit from the Devil himself to the Hook Peninsula. Intriguing stories of heroes and victims of both World Wars, and the plight of Wexford slave labourers in a Nazi concentration camp. Detailed accounts of six Wexford people who sailed on the Titanic, legends of pirates on the Hook and brutal murders in the county. All in all, a heady brew for lovers of Irish history.
