The strange tale of Loftus Hall in the South East of Ireland and what happened at the mansion one dark night back in the 18th century. More Irish ghostly tales here: http://www.amazon.com/Irish-Ghost-Sto...
Forget this "Haunting In Connecticut" or "Amityville Horror" nonsense!
Loftus Hall was the original. This building was once accurately described as The Most Haunted Place on Earth, such was the fear it exerted over its inhabitants and the locals from the region.
The mansion still stands there today, though it is now unused and under lock and key. If you are a tourist in the Waterford / Wexford area, it's certainly worth a drive down to the peninsula to check out the beautiful view of the open sky and the sea from Hook Head lighthouse. And along the way, you can stop at the gateway to Loftus Hall and stare in over the fields at the isolated building.
After the incident portrayed in this video clip, there were other hauntings too in later years. Finally, an exorcism was carried out. A Catholic priest named Father Broaders was the exorcist whose work succeeded in quelling most of the paranormal activity. The hauntings became much rarer after that - though still did not die out entirely.
Father Broader's gravestone still stands today, not far from Hook Head. On the stone is written the following epitaph:
"Here lies the body of Thomas Broaders,
who did good and prayed for all,
and who banished the devil from Loftus Hall".
