I remember hearing from other people back in the day, the story about the nurse on the motorway.

http://joegraham.rushlightmagazine.com/belfastghosts.html

"At Beechmount many are the reports that one used to hear of people having seen a Headless Nun. Some reported seeing the statue of Our Lady in the grounds of St Roseís school crying and omens such as the outbreak of the present troubles were read into the incident ... all this just a year before the troubles started."

"Another famous ghost is that of the young nurse who was killed in an accident on the Ml some years ago. Her ghost has been often given lifts by passing motorists who stopped and let her into their cars after seeing her standing at the side of the motorway. The motorists sp of reaching Belfast and on asking the girl where she wanted out, they got no answer. Looking round, to their horror, they found the back seat where the girl had been sitting empty ... she had disappeared . and yet, they hadnít stopped since picking the girl up!"

"She says: I was always interested in the paranormal as a child and of course heard all the stories about 91 Beechmount Street, the famous haunted house there was a book about. Some said that family made up the story to get a Housing Executive house but people who knew them and all our ones were convinced it really was haunted. It was the ghost of an old woman who hated the husband in the house and used to beat him up and push him down the stairs. The house is gone now; itís just waste ground.

Can't see one,... but,... there does appear to be a paper copy available here,... which can be viewed on site in Dublin,...



https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Library_of_Ireland

Perhaps the author might be able to help to get a digital version created,... and there does seem to be a lot of interest in the book.

This might be the same author,...
