Irish Balderdash, Termonfeckin (Co. Louth)

ave you heard of Termonfeckin, the town that overlooks the Irish Sea? It’s small in size, made up of modest farmers, but its history is slightly… phantasmic.

The town was raided throughout the centuries since its inception. Such war isn’t without casualties. It has been said Termonfeckin Castle is not a place to visit after dark, unless you’re meeting the ghost of Kieran Feichin, a soldier who died defending the land of his forefathers. He died a death not befitting of an honorable man. He still paces the grounds, awaiting his redemption.

And so became Tearmann Feichin, a refuge indeed.
