Locals get into the ‘spirit’ of things at Tarbert Bridewell
THINGS took a turn for the supernatural in Tarbert Bridewell Jail last Friday night, as members of the public joined the ‘Ghost Eire’ team for a night of spooky experiments.
The team, who go on expeditions to historical sites around Ireland once a month, conducted a series of experiments from 8pm to 2am on the night including a number of seance and ouija boards sessions.
Anthony Kerrigan was one of the main organisers behind the night and he said that it was definitely an ‘interesting’ night with a number of people having different experiences.
“We had a number of people who felt a hand or a breeze on their neck while we were conducting the seance and some people who were looking in some of the cells on the night. They got a sudden intense smell of urine and flowers - very distinct and unusual smells,” said Anthony, speaking to The Kerryman on Monday.
Anthony says that the group of 12 people were not alone in the jail on the night, with a number of spirits ‘making contact’ with the group.
“We did something called a manifestation board and we felt that there were angels or spirit guides that were coming through.”
“In our last seance session then, we felt that there was some of sort of ‘ keeper’ coming through, a keeper or a jailer. It felt like he was trying to tell us that we had stayed beyond our stay and that we were in ‘ their time’ and they felt that we should be in the cells. It was a very interesting night,” he finished.
