The Mary Celeste of Medieval Ireland




The Mary Celeste is one of the great mysteries of modern times. The ship was found abandoned in the Atlantic the 1872 and the ten people who had been aboard the vessel were missing. However everything else appeared normal. It has never been satisfactorily explained what provoked the crew to abandon the ship in mid winter far from any coast.

This episode is recorded in a very Irish unusual castle with echoes of the Mary Celeste – Ballymoon Castle. It too has a somewhat mysterious history. It was abandoned around the year 1300 for reasons that are not entirely clear. In this show I investigate this fascinating building and speculate what may have happened.
