THE HORRIBLE TRUTH

that you were never supposed to hear

History

We can now reveal to you some of  the secret and terrible history of Galway, events so gruesome that the story has been buried for over one hundred and fifty years.

When a seemingly innocent travelling Carnival came to Galway many years ago, chaos ensued when many of the side-show freaks escaped into the City of Galway. Despite the best efforts of the local watch, the maniacal gang wreaked havoc upon the city, striking in the dark, vanishing in the night, leaving a trail of destruction and horror in their wake.

The city, paralyzed with fear, breathed a collective sigh of relief when the Carnvial upped and disappeared one night. While the nightly reign of terror came to a halt, it was locally held that the deranged freaks had escaped to the wilds of Connemara, hidden in the Western wilderness.

Months later, when visitors to the local convent on a feast day found the doors locked, the horrible truth was discovered.  Having forced entry, the local watch were horrified to find the freaks had entered the convent and turned it into a grotesque lair of unnameable horror, and apparently turned upon each other in some sort of frenzied madness.

The scene was so gruesome, so shocking, that the building was boarded up, its shocking secret horror locked away for ever……
