Travelogue from 1960s ghost hunters Each chapter is one setting region in Ireland Within the chapter, the narrative is very disjointed and superficial Would not recommend, nor do I intend to find anyfrom this author. I ve probably had this book for 30 years and the Date Read listed is the most recent reading but the material in this book has aged well. I thought it was about the lively GOATS of Ireland and boy, was I surprised No, just kidding wacka, wacka, wacka This is a dated bit of supernatural slurry from the 1960s that is written in a somewhat sprightly style and includes some tidbits of interesting history and some decent descriptive prose, but the paranormal activity and evidence for it was almost as hokey as the silly TV show Ghost Hunters I m heading soon for my third visit to Ireland though, so I will keep my sixth sense sharp I thought it was about the lively GOATS of Ireland and boy, was I surprised No, just kidding wacka, wacka, wacka This is a dated bit of supernatural slurry from the 1960s that is written in a somewhat sprightly style and includes some tidbits of interesting history and some decent descriptive prose, but the paranormal activity and evidence for it was almost as hokey as the silly TV show Ghost Hunters I m heading soon for my third visit to Ireland though, so I will keep my sixth sense sharp and my eyes peeled just in case I have a chance encounter with a restless spirit from beyond the Pale or even within, since some of the alleged encounters occur in Dublin I had no idea if this was fiction or non fiction when my sister gave it to me, but I love all genres and enjoyed every page of this There are a lot of great references, and the fact that Sybil Leek is in it made it a treasure that I won t give up Each story has something to offer, as well as new destinations I want to add to my list of places travel to. I liked this book overall, but for me it wasn t as thrilling as some of the books I ve read regarding paranormal investigations Most of the hauntings were described with witness reports and impressions received by Sybil Leek Sybil was accurate at times, and there were several photographs taken by Hans Holzer which were said to be astonishing, but I would have preferred that the evidence accumulated be a littlescientific in nature and the photographs be included in the book.must be the sk I liked this book overall, but for me it wasn t as thrilling as some of the books I ve read regarding paranormal investigations Most of the hauntings were described with witness reports and impressions received by Sybil Leek Sybil was accurate at times, and there were several photographs taken by Hans Holzer which were said to be astonishing, but I would have preferred that the evidence accumulated be a littlescientific in nature and the photographs be included in the book.must be the skeptic in me This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here So I was expecting the author to be a littleghost huntery and a little less TV show hosty This was written in the 60s so I realize there are some stylistic differences, but this ghost hunter really just randomly drives around Ireland with a medium, then reassures us every chapter that of course she didn t know any of this beforehand, and when she does interact with the entities which will always be the most fascinating part for me , it gets kind of hand wavey I m definitely getting So I was expecting the author to be a littleghost huntery and a little less TV show hosty This was written in the 60s so I realize there are some stylistic differences, but this ghost hunter really just randomly drives around Ireland with a medium, then reassures us every chapter that of course she didn t know any of this beforehand, and when she does interact with the entities which will always be the most fascinating part for me , it gets kind of hand wavey I m definitely getting the name White Well, it was Whitney, but close enough And so many chapters end with A little annoying, mostly Irish history and names, too little actual ghost stuff for me A rather silly book, written in the 1960 s It reminds me of the old so called psychics who used to appear on TV searching valiantly for any possible connection with anyone in the audience eg I have a Jim.Jim Tim..Tom..Trevor.Is there a man in the audience The book concerns the travels of an American ghost hunter, his wife and their psychic friend who visit parts of Ireland looking for ghosts In my opinion they found none They consider it a success.Don t bother. I couldn t even make it half way through this book The author has a psychic traveling with him and she seems a bit fraudulent I could have come up with the same conclusions that she did at the sites of the hauntings The author is a bit full of himself and I did find some humor in that I was very dissappointed with this book. Sorry not much of a review, as I read this back in the late 1970s Holzer churned these things out by the bushel full it must have been an interesting life, I ll give him that `Read ☂ The Lively Ghosts of Ireland ☙ A ghost hunter describes his journey through Ireland exploring supernatural occurences, including the ghosts of an eighteenth century swordsman defending a castle, a six year old haunting a hotel, and a woman tormenting her jealous sister
