Paranormal Supernatural Investigations Ireland visited a psychiatric hospital where they captured a horrifying image of a ghost looking out a window.
The supernatural investigators went to Our Lady’s Psychiatric Hospital in Ennis, which opened in 1868 and closed in 2002.
They took to social media and shared an image from the site, which they claim is of a ghost who never left the asylum.
“A very interesting picture taken by ourselves at Ennis Asylum,” the group’s post read.
“Most people that know Our Lady’s Psychiatric Hospital in Ennis will all say the same. It’s a very dark and eerie building that makes them feel very uncomfortable.
“Let’s be honest, people were admitted to this bleak building just to be out of mind and out of sight.
“Problems with family inheritance and relationships you could easily have ended up here.”
They also said that the conditions at the asylum were ‘grim’ and did not improve by the 1950’s.
They went on: “Many staff lived and raised their families in the hospital, which was a huge employer and purchaser of local produce at a time when economic activity was scarce in the town.
“Meanwhile, the custodial approach was in practice inside the building’s enormous grey walls, with terrible overcrowding documented with just inches between patients’ beds in a ward of 70.
“One nurse described it as a vision from hell.
“The hospital welcomed the advent of electroconvulsive therapy, while drug trials also took place there.”
According to a report: “Whilst conditions improved in the latter half of the 20th Century, a report by the Inspector of Mental Hospitals in 1989 still made for dismal reading: ‘Virtually all patients appeared to be unoccupied during the day; it seemed to us that many patients could have resettled in the community, with varying degrees of support, without too much difficulty.
One person replied to the post: “A lot of Innocent poor souls committed to these awful institutions.”
Another shared: “I have been in this building a good few times and always had that strange feeling of some presence.
“I explored every inch of the place before it was completely vandalized. There is a ward on the same wing where there are four padded cells, that ward was definitely the most eerie.
“Well worth checking it out, but be careful inside as some parts are very unsafe.”
