Paula, from Dublin, received a reassuring visit from her late mother in the form a white dove.
Stephen, a boy from Derry, played with the spirit of his dead brother Josh.
Michelle, from County Wicklow, encountered her mother, who had died two years previously, at her father’s wake.
Many other individuals recount in this book their experiences of ghostly visitations and poltergeists. Paul Fennell, himself a paranormal investigator, has collected reports of ghostly events and visitations from all over Ireland.
In the preliminary section of his book, he describes different kinds of manifestations from inexplicable movements of inanimate objects to strange noises, and figures that move at will through locked doors and brick walls. He categorises them: from revenants and grounded spirits, through poltergeists, to demonic possession.
Most of this book comprises the stories of ordinary people, told in their own words. It will surely persuade the sceptical that there are more things in heaven and on earth than are dreamt of in their philosophy.
