"Ghost Stories of Rathmines" infests the author's Dublin neighbourhood with an authentic population of ghosts, ghouls and goblins. Brian J. Showers has filled each story with fascinating regional history, local atmosphere and architectural details that are clearly visible today. While this gives the stories a factual flavour, the supernatural twists and turns are entirely fictional. The result is a realistic yet deliciously spooky portrait of a neighbourhood that many in Dublin know more
