The ghosts of Ireland are as numerous and interesting as they are varied. Indeed, there have been accounts of a man carrying a basin containing his severed head, a frightened girl whose hands are dripping with blood, and a body floating in blood-red water. It is also possible to hear the wail of a banshee, the sounds of mocking laughter, the din of battle, and the sound of someone choking, and many other sounds and experiences that bring a shiver to your spine.
