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.

There have recently been alleged sightings of Bigfoot in Ireland.  Being on the spot, I wished to make a few comments.  There is no way a breeding population of such creatures could have survived over the centuries.  There simply isn't enough room in the country for them to have avoided detection.  This leaves a number of possibilities.  The first is that the sightings were all mistaken.  The second is that they are entering the country through portals or being dropped off by UFOs.  Choose which you think likelier.

As there is no word equating to Bigfoot in the Irish language, I have cointed the word ollchos from prefix oll- indicating 'large, great' and cos, a foot.  For those under the mistaken impression that English is the only language spoken in Ireland, the ancient language of the country, which English has largely replaced, is still widely understood.

Go n-eiridh an bothar libh.
