Grace (cryptid victim)


Grace (cryptid victim)

Grace (uncertain – September 27, 1722) was an Irish woman. She was known to have been a victim of a Dobhar-chu, a dangerous cryptozoological animal.

Her tomb tells her final hours:

"On September 27, 1722, a woman named Grace was killed by a Dobhar-chu, while washing clothes in Glenade Lake. When her husband came to find her, he found instead a Dobhar-chu sitting on her bloody clothes and mutilated body. He killed the beast, stabbing it in the heart. As it died, it made a noise like a whistle. Its supposed mate rose from the water and chased the man and his friend. They killed it before it got the chance to hurt either man."
