How Covid may have secured the future of this family business!
Good evening, it's Micheal here with you. It's Hallowe'en week – I just love it, even though I have been told to tone down my brilliant horror stories. Apparently it's not the best idea to tell your eight-year-old daughter the (obviously fictional) story of the horrific happenings, in the very house she calls home, exactly 100 years ago TONIGHT! It's always tonight, even though the same story is attempted every night for about a week! In terms of decorations, the ghost is hanging just above the front door, the zombie hand protrudes from the soil in the front garden, the skeleton skull, and accompanying hands, sit eerily atop the driveway hedge; knife (with blood) placed as if it's going through the skeleton's neck – the anatomical accuracy leaves a lot to be desired – and of course, pumpkins at the ready. The 'Caution, Do Not Enter' tape will go up on Hallowe'en.
This week, at Armagh I, we're giving away Hallowe'en Walking Tour tickets with a simple Armagh ghost story question needing answered to enter, as well as a sweets hamper for your fancy dress pics. See below for more info on those.
Meanwhile, you can find the rest of the newsletter here...
