WARREN COATES discusses the haunted past of Cavehill, which overlooks Belfast in Northern Ireland
There is quite a famous ghost story about Cavehill Belfast. The ghost of a man was sighted quite regularly at a particular area of our local beauty spot during the early years of the 20th century.
He was always seen around the same area, usually just standing looking at a particular spot amongst the trees, although he was seen to be moving rapidly ABOVE(!) the ground once or twice in the same spot.
Eventually a gruesome discovery was made when human remains were found in that spot. Investigations showed that they were the remains of a man and suicide was officially recorded as the cause of death.
The remains were later identified as being those of a local man who had disappeared a few years before. The remains were given a proper burial and the ghostly figure was no longer seen.
