Exorcism: Irish family flee house after son flung from bed

Exorcism: Irish family flee house after son flung from bed
A excorcism will be performed on a council house in the Republic of Ireland tonight, amid claims that it is haunted.

The occupants of the house at Hollyhill on Cork's northside have fled, saying it is occupied by an evil spirit that is determined to keep them out.

Laura Burke, her partner Ritchie and her son Kyle are terrified to remain after a spate of bizarre occurrences over recent weeks.

The young couple moved into the house last August.

Today, special prayers will be said at the house to placate the spirit and a 'New Age' shaman (spirit worker) will perform an exorcism.

Laura said holy pictures were routinely being knocked from the wall, screams were heard in the dead of night and their son was flung from his bed.

The family received their greatest shock when they spotted what they described as "glowing orbs" hovering in mid-air in certain rooms in the house.

"It's an evil spirit -- I don't believe it means us well," said Laura.

"We tried saying prayers in the house and the next thing all you hear is banging furniture upstairs or clothes being fired out of wardrobes."

Clairvoyant John O'Reilly was invited to inspect the house. He said he immediately felt "a presence", adding: "There is someone here -- someone who is very angry.

"I get (a feeling) of a younger man who would have hung himself."

However, locals remain dubious about the haunting claims and said nobody recalls previous incidents at the house or any tragedy fitting the descriptions being cited.

What, the general catholicism hasn't saturated your embarrassment circuits?

We will shortly be docking in Cobh. The local time is 9:15am. For those who have departed from the rest of reality please turn your clocks back 300 years.

There is that old Chinese curse: May you live in interesting country.

Maybe I mangled it a bit.

Nowt to be embarrassed about Animavore, it happens to us all, regardless of nation. :) I'm interested though - if you can keep an eye on the press for me, I'd be grateful.

No probs. I'll be watching it for the laugh obviously. I hope they do a programme on TV.
