The Burren

A Halloween Story – Hungry Ghosts

Eileen walked out onto the Burren, the lunar limestone karst landscape of the west of Ireland. She walks here every Halloween night. She used to walk it with her mother, but she has long since returned to the soil and Eileen’s daughters have no interest in the ‘old ways’.

So she walks alone.

Except she is never really alone. That is why she walks this road on Halloween night. It is the famine road.
