The Prison-Coffin Ghost

   Posted by: Ghost Guy   in Ghost Faces

This photograph was taken in an old Irish prison called the Crumlin Road Prison. The prison was built around 1843 or 1845. There were 17 prisoners executed there, the last being hanged in 1961. Fifteen of the 17 men who were hanged, were buried in unmarked graves in unconsecrated ground around the prison walls.

Several prison staff have also been killed there by prisoners and there has also been suicides. The man in the photograph was with a group of painters who were doing some renovation work. He climbed into an empty coffin for a joke and his friends took photographs of him on their mobile phones.

The photograph was taken in the execution cell 13 which was the cell where prisoners would spend their last night before being led to the hanging gallows to be killed. If you look to the left of the mans face you can clearly see a ghostly face!

Many other sightings have been reported in this prison. There have been many terrible things that have happened in the prison. Many people feel a sudden coolness come over them when they enter the execution room and many have even heard cries.
