The curse of Loughmourne

This one's for the good folk of County Antrim! I've just been going through my late mum's papers and have found a printed copy of an anonymous poem about Loughmourne, an area situated a couple of miles north of my old home town of Carrickfergus. For a transcription of the poem, and some background to the area that it concerns, visit my other wee blog at


My next Scotland 1750-1850: Beyond the Old Parish Records online course starts on November 5th, and runs for 5 weeks, priced at £45.99. Spaces are still available - see
