'Otherworld Shenanigans' posts

If you're looking to escape the weather with a cup of tea and a short story here are links to my
'Otherworld Shenanigans' posts.
They are based upon real places in Ireland, tales and reminiscences of my elderly neighbour, Jim, 
who lived his life in the same house he was born in. 
The stories reflect a time when the belief in the Good People was more common than it is today. 
Just click on the titles below & you will be transported.

Our home is marked X,  the wooden cabin Y & the second field Z.

The island on Lough Duff , in which the Good People live, may have looked like this.
