Tyrone Ghosties

The world is catching up with the Coalisland ghost. Great to know that the local youth are taking up a different old Irish tradition from that prevailing in the 70s and that today’s Sean-bhean Bhocht is defiantly non-political.

    Ah, but is it a catholic ghost or a protestant ghost or just a sinister plan by the orangies/provies to ethnically cleanse the other side?

  • dunreavynomore

    I don’t believe one word of it! Why would any self respecting ghost settle in Tyrone when in the blink of an eye it could be down in Armagh eating apples?

  • Pgeon Toes

    Was it just trying to get out of “the Island”?

  • Turgon


    I agree that the religious persuasion of the ghost is critical. However, might it be the only Alliance supporter in that area who committed suicide in despair and loneliness?

  • Rory Carr

    “…today’s Sean-bhean Bhocht is defiantly non-political.”

    …and might have remained so, Brian, prior to the above allusion.

    “Not that I mind at all,” I would say except that my known allegiences on here would only serve to reinforce the old dear’s gaelicisation in the eyes of themmuns.

    On the other hand, in the spirit of ecunemism, we could try carrying out a joint RC/Evangelical/Presbyterian rite of exorcism. Or is it still that the mere mention of anything “that would be an ecumenical matter” likely to provoke a riot?

    The ghost is out there, so is the truth.
