Written by journalist Michael Harkin and published in 1867 in order to record and preserve the fast vanishing traditions of this well loved peninsula.

'Maghtochair' was the pseudonym of 'Derry Journal' journalist Michael Harkin who published this book to record and preserve the fast vanishing traditions before the old social order and the Gaelic language disappeared. The book sweeps through Inishowen's ancient, medieval and modern history. We hear of its mythical past as well as its topography and archaeology. .

To this story he adds descriptions of each parish. To this he adds colourful stories of rebels, murders, legends and folklore, along with superstitions which once abounded about them.
