9781903582190: Bloody Irish: Great Irish Vampire Stories

Did you know that the oldest recorded vampire story comes from Ireland? This book discusses the ancient Celtic beliefs about death and how these were assimilated by Christianity; the importance which the ancient Celts and early Christians placed on blood; and how the Christian Church transmuted the vampire from an ancestor's ghost to a malevolent demon. Stories of spooky, mystical, and bloody tales are relayed throughout.
