Ghost Photo: Shadow Monk

The photo to the left was taken in Ireland’s historic Muckross Abbey. Could the shadowy figure in the background be the ghost of a long-dead friar?

Founded in 1448, Muckross Abbey has a dark and violent past. The abbey was home to Franciscan friars who were repeatedly raided by bands of marauders. The men also suffered from Cromwellian forces. Now, only ruins of the once majestic structure remain.

The graveyard surrounding the abbey has a chilling reputation. One creepy legend speaks of a man who dug up the body of his newly dead wife and feasted on her corpse. Some say Bram Stoker also spent time in the cemetery.

Other odd events at Muckross Abbey include the faint sounds of Gregorian chanting and a general sense of unease.
