'Poltergeist' caught on camera in Ireland

Eerie footage has emerged showing a series of allegedly paranormal disturbances at a school in Cork.
The recording, which was uploaded on to the YouTube channel of Deerpark CBS, shows just under two minutes of footage captured in the early hours of the morning by a CCTV security camera.

At first, nothing happens, however around 16 seconds in to the clip a door in the corridor to the right suddenly slams shut with a loud bang, seemingly without human intervention.

At around 33 seconds in to the clip, one of the locker units begins to rock back and forth on its own, followed by a separate locker on the adjoining unit which flies open, spreading papers everywhere.

The activity ends with a 'wet floor' sign falling over by itself at around 1:22 on the video.

But is everything really as it seems ? The fact that the locker unit is situated directly in front of a window is certainly suspicious as someone could simply have been pushing it from outside.

The door that slams at the beginning is also too far away to make out properly.

The video, which has managed to rack up over 1.1 million views on YouTube, can be viewed below.

Of course you do in your typical close minded, evidence avoiding, always choose paranormal thinking. In information theory, information is passed if the answer is something that cannot be predicted. In papageorge1's case no information is passed since the answer is always predictable - they choose paranormal.

So are you now saying the video is not extraordinary? This is a trivial video that begins before motion starts. The camera is not in a position a CCTV security camera would be installed. It is clearly a fake. Once again you fell for it. You arbitrarily chose paranormal - AGAIN. You might want to try that skeptic method of examining the data and making a reasoned determination.

You are dead wrong again. The solution is not paranormal in every case studied.

What is there in the video that even appeals to you? It looks like a fake. It is filmed like a fake. It is right before a fund raiser. Please tell us what has you interested. Here is a site pointing out some video editing done. https://www.snopes.com/ghost-on-camera-hallways-ireland-school/

I find it rather disturbing that the school's principal and deputy principal (that's Kevin Barry and Aaron Wolfe for the search engines) seem to now be deliberately lying, or at the very least, continuing the deception well past the 'Use by' date for a Halloween prank..  Clearly they know dam well this is NOT footage from the school's security system, and given this was shot after hours, they either gave permission or are ignoring a break-in... The time for this being a harmless prank is well and truly over and they should have fessed up, especially given the proof (refer Stereo's Snopes link)... [More]

Well, this is another video, eh. Apparently the school seems to be sticking by their story. To me, this adds a little more credence to the ghost hypothesis as no one is fessing up to anything. Perhaps they are all just telling the truth?  I'd like to see a reporter go into this story really deep. I would be willing to go to Cork and do a full investigation from all angles and report back. No chance UM would fund my research project, ha ha ha!

Apparently, the school has made videos before. Frankly, a school is likely to allow the project to go forward and then not comment on it afterwards. They have other issues that take up their time. Still, it is amazingly easy to fool the extremely gullible. Never ceases to amaze me what simple tricks fool the gullible.

I was having a chuckle at how simple the video is and how some people are fooled. It reminded me of a saying that makes youngster laugh today. The saying is "Illuminati confirmed." Some politician is exposed doing something greedy and the kids says "Illuminati confirmed." A dictator does something and the kids say "Illuminati confirmed." Some corrupt business person gets away with something and the kids say ... I guess a similar mantra is at work here. Any video with simple events in it and someone says "Paranormal confirmed." Unlike the kids that know they are telling a joke, some people seem... [More]

Found an interesting video the school did last year. I was actually looking for more of the spooky stuff, and came across a debunk- it's in French. But what was interesting is that there were shots of the spooky area during the daytime when the students filmed a mannequin challenge. Points out where the lockers weren't, that the window opens, and where the real security camera is actually mounted starting at around 9:50 The French debunk video:   Below is the mannequin challenge video. It's interesting to note that the same area is used for both the spooky videos, it's just filmed from the two... [More]

Seems to me to be a good way to teach their kids that if you fake and hoax, you can get lots of attention.  And from that, ad revenue etc....  Is this school perhaps wanting to be the source of the next Steven Greer, Jaime Maussan, Jose Escamilla,.. etc? I guess they looked at drug production, too, but figured you can more easily be arrested for that.. OK, I'm being a little tongue in cheek, but I think it's a very thin wedge they are walking...
