The media interest surrounding the Enfield Haunting and the associated television mini series has caused quite a stir more than 30 years after the original claims of activity.
Ireland has a history of poltergeists, much going back to the bloodshed and dark history in castles in ancient buildings. Such activity was deemed the work of demons and possession and the Catholic Church would not admit to its existence or any involvement in clearing such entities. As a result those affected would not come forward for fear of reprisals.
I was surprised therefore to find 20th and 21st century documented accounts, particularly in residential homes. Here are my top five Irish Poltergeist Hauntings.
