Our luck has finally run out and we don’t have any new Irish horror goodies to share with you. Since it’s not known how long it will take to replenish our supplies (or if said supplies will ever be replenished), here’s a look back at all of our previous St. Patty’s Day celebrations: Scary Saint …

Do you live in or near Plano, Texas? If so, you desperately need to look into attending “Saint Patrick’s Slay” at the Dark Hour Haunted House (or at least pick up one of their shirts commemorating the event). If you want to learn more about the world of Irish horror, the Spooky Isles and Emerald …

Have a Spooky St. Patrick’s Day!

Since we tend to focus on American works inspired by Irish traditions in our annual celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, it is a welcome change to pace to actually share something from the Emerald Isle with you.

The Banshee’s Halloween

It’s Saint Patrick’s Day here at the local again and I thought it best to take a break from the usual Leprechaun franchise related posts this year. Instead, let’s read a selection from Irish-American author Herminie Templeton Kavanagh’s novel Darby O’Gill and the Good People called “The Banshee’s Halloween.” Although the Irish (and horror) connection …

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Remember that “Leprechaun in Mobile, Alabama” thing from a few years back? The one with that inspired a hilarious rap remix? Well, someone combined it with the trailer from the movie Leprechaun and the world is better for it: Speaking of the Leprechaun franchise, does anyone else out there remember a segment from Entertainment Tonight …
