I've just seen a copy of Ireland's Own in Sainsburys. It's a "family magazine" that has been running since 1902. The latest issue, no.5666(!) contains the latest article in its "Stranger than Fiction" strand. This contains "true" ghost stories. I well remember the one about the football player who scored the winning goal in front of literally thousands of witnesses after he had had a fatal car crash! I am not making this up. I have never seen Ireland's Own cited in any guide to supernatural fiction. It is printed on what looks like toilet roll. By that I mean the absorbent kind, not the industrial-strength non-absorbent kind we had in primary school that could literally cut diamonds.
Ireland's Own does exist: "The week wouldn't be the same without it!"
