The Magic of Modern Technology set to Resurrect the Centuries-Old Story of Ireland’s Last Witch Trial

Press/Media: Expert Comment


"Ireland’s own version of the Salem witch trials took place in Islandmagee in 1711, when eight women and one man were accused of demonically possessing and magically tormenting a young girl. Now, this significant historical event is being brought to life by Ulster University in graphic novel format, with an accompanying interactive website, video game, original score and VR experience."
