At the beginning of the 21st Century monsters still roam the remote, and sometimes not so remote, corners of our planet. It is our job to search for them. The Centre for Fortean Zoology [CFZ] is - we believe - the largest professional, scientific and full-time organisation in the world dedicated to cryptozoology - the study of unknown animals. Since 1992 the CFZ has carried out an unparalleled programme of research and investigation all over the world. Since 2009 we have been running the increasingly popular CFZ Blog Network, and although there has been an American branch of the CFZ for over ten years now, it is only now that it has a dedicated blog.

As March 17th is St Patrick's Day, patron saint of my native country (Ireland), I have done a St Patrick themed site for it.  There are many Fortean zoological materials associated with Ireland and I have sought out a sample.

St Patrick's historicity is not in doubt.  He throve in the 5th Century AD.  His exact dates are uncertain and there are many legends about him.

As a sideline, many people do not know that English only started to become the predominant language in Ireland in the 19th Century.  Before that Irish, a Celtic language was spoken.  It is still spoken in parts of the country today and is an official language of Ireland.  That is why some Irish names look so strange.
