Murder Most Foul
|Leap Castle Gate|
Remember my little encounter in the Bloody Chapel of Leap Castle? Well, it looks like I got off easy. I keep finding more stories that make Edgar Allen’s stories seem rather fluffy.
While this McKenzie escaped with only a missing tab from her backpack, the clan McMahon didn’t fare quite as well.

Those O’Carrolls were downright nasty devils and not above hiring, then firing their employees–permanently. After the McMahon’s (about 40 of them, the story goes) provided their services, the O’Carrolls invited them to celebrate with a nice little arsenic (guessing here) laced feast. And poof. . . 40 more ghosts. That place is over-crowded with spirits not ready to forgive and forget.
The interesting thing is that whenever I asked the present-day owner what he could tell me about the castle that would be of interest, the word ghost never passed his lips.
