Ghost Tour Season a success
Ghost Tours of Portadown attracted over 120 visitors throughout the month of October. The tour is all based around storytelling and old folklores of the town. All the stories that are told on the tour have historical records attached to them. Those historical records are either documentation of witness accounts or Newspaper articles.
Although the tours are based on storytelling, there have been a few sightings along the way, particularly around the area of the Bann Bridge. Most of the sightings around the Bann Bridge can be traced back to the events of the 1641 Massacre, which is one of Portadown’s most horrific but forgotten events. Even for those who don’t believe in the paranormal, many have remarked the ‘eerie’ feeling that they have when standing under the bridge.
This year there was a sighting of an unexplained figure In one of the photographs that was taken of a group of visitors. Although, you could argue very well that it was some well placed leaves. Nevertheless it all adds to the Halloween season. You can read the full story by clicking the link below.
