Paranormal Investigators Capture Shocking Sight While Traveling To Abandoned Asylums Say They’re Haunted
PARANORMAL investigators believe they have captured footage of a ghost in the window of an abandoned asylum.
Paranormal Supernatural Investigation Ireland traveled to Our Lady of Ennis Psychiatric Hospital in County Clare last week to examine the strange building.
The group said they chose the location for the scouting because many locals believe the place is haunted.
And after reviewing footage taken during the visit, the gang believe they captured the spirit of a child staring at us through the window in some of their footage.
Recounting the visit, Richard Morrison said: ‘We went there last week to take a look at the building as we were told that this building has a lot of negative energy in it.
“While talking to the locals, they informed us that the asylum is haunted.
“We walked around outside and took a lot of photos, and this image stood out for us.”
The asylum, built in 1868, was by far the largest public building in the county at the time of its construction.
It had a large Italian-style palace at its centre, stood on a 52-acre site and cost around £54,000.
Its name changed from Ennis Lunatic Asylum to Ennis Mental Hospital, and when it closed in 2002 was known as Notre Dame Hospital.

It had a capacity of 600 people, although it was often overcrowded.
The group posted the ghost images on their social media account, which stunned their followers.
People all made the same comment after viewing the image of the group, with one person saying: ‘Somebody else see the person looking out the window’
Another posted: ‘I can see someone looking out the two windows on the right side’, while another person commented: ‘Someone looking out the window in the corner.’
In the post, the group added: ‘Most people who know of Our Lady of Ennis Psychiatric Hospital will all say the same thing. It is a very dark and mysterious building which makes them very uncomfortable.
“Let’s be honest, people were allowed into this dark building just to be out of mind and out of sight. Family legacy and relationship issues, you could easily have ended up here.
“Conditions in the asylum were grim and had not improved in the 1950s.”
He added: ‘A nurse described it as a vision from hell. The hospital welcomed the advent of electrical seizure therapy, while drug trials also took place there.”
More than two dozen “insane asylums” were built throughout Ireland in the 19th century.
The group has already left people shocked with the chilling paranormal figures they take on sites across the country.
Last year, Richard revealed how the events following his grandfather’s death led him to become a supernatural investigator.
