This spirit in Roscommon Ireland has given himself a big job–keeping the prisoners in line.
Irish Ghost Doesn’t Get a Break!

Even the most hardened criminal turns to jelly when he passes by their cells. But why would a spirit want to hang out in jail?
Strangely enough, this fellow has only been hanging around since the recent blessing of the prison burial ground by Catholic Clergy. Apparently, the whole ceremony got him stirred up.
Who is he? It’s said that this is the ghost of a man who took his own life long ago when the prison was a mental hospital. It is reported that an exorcism took place, but that has been denied by a local Bishop after his recent visit to Castlerea.
We believe our ghost has found a calling, being a translucent guard, and that he won’t give it up easily! Good job.
Best from the Crew at Authentic Ireland!
