Dublin Urban Legends

The urban legend is at once a story of the imagination and a sombre relating of truth. It is a story told as true, in a recognisable setting peopled by believable characters who have paused in their daily lives to deal with the matter in hand, whether it be humorous or dreadful.
Whether they started in Dublin and wandered away with the Irish diaspora or arrived in the city from somewhere else, far away, is not always easy to decide. What is true, however, is that in Dublin they are told as Dublin stories.
