I think I saw a ghost. And no, this isn’t an episode of Scooby-Doo – this is an episode in the life of Patrick Kelleher, a life that is, I assure you, much less exciting.
The incident occurred when I took a walk through the Demesne in my local town, Castlerea, Co. Roscommon, Ireland. The Demesne in my town is a truly beautiful place that stretches for quite a large area. A beautiful river winds through the trees and its overgrown grass. There’s something incredibly peaceful about walking through there.
According to Wikipedia, the Demesne was owned by Theophilus Sandford in the 17th century. The place has a long history, and if you believe in the paranormal, then this would probably be a place to see a ghost.
When walking through the Demesne, my dog dragged me off the path to a fence. I looked out at the beautiful sunset and felt compelled to take a photo of the natural beauty around me. I took out my phone, took a photo, and forgot all about it. Until yesterday, when I remembered to take a look at the photo. Here it is:
My initial thought was that it was the sun shining through the trees. The red ball of light looks like the suns effect on the camera. But there’s something unusual about it. It looks like a little ball of floating light in the centre of the photo. Let’s zoom in.
