Ireland Report / Story
An Irish woman from Meath, Ireland has taken to social media to detail her experience while out walking in a wooded area.

The woman described how she was out on a walk when she realised she was completely lost unable to find her way back to any path that she would normal know. This is reported to have happened after the woman passed between two trees.

The woman was trying to up her step count for a step challenge she was doing in her work, she said "It was a nice day so I said I would go for a walk in the woods. What was the worst that could happen?".

"I stepped through and put my hands on both trees. People are saying now that this was a mistake. One was really warm and the other was really wet and cold. I walked on and I think I took a left."

"The main path kind of branched off to the left and it just went nowhere. It went into a really overgrown forest, really high weeds and plants. I knew it wasn't the path. There were lots of people around. It's a really popular spot so I walked back and I thought that this wasn't the main path and I should have taken the other way."

"I took the other way and then that similarly went nowhere. I went back to the fork to start over. I went back and I think I tried to go back the way I came. That also lead me nowhere."

"I walked back up the main path again but it didn't look familiar. It was quite overcast at this point as well. I had pulled up Google Maps and I didn't have a signal on my phone at all, which is not unusual for that area."

"I kept walking down a path towards a really overgrown area again. At that point then, I heard a really light woman's voice. I don't know how to describe it. It was really high. She was shouting 'over here'."

"I thought she was probably calling to her kids or something. Then she laughed and it was just when she laughed, the hairs on the back of my neck stood up."

"I have a very professional job. I'm not crazy. I'm quite logical but then the call came from the other side of me. I knew something wasn't right."

"I just had to do it. I turned my t-shirt inside out, put it back on. I was hoping nobody was looking at me because it was a really weird thing to do in the middle of a forest."

"I turned around and walked back and almost immediately came to the two trees again. When I turned around and came back, I came to them quicker than when I had been walking in the opposite direction."

"I didn't even think. I just wanted to get through. Then I could hear the birds again and people and stuff. I didn't know what had just happened."

"When I got back to the car, I looked at my steps. The last time I checked my step counter I had done 8,000 steps or something like that. I had put on an extra 10,000 steps. I didn't come from a family that would have believed in that sort of stuff. Certain things just stick in your head and that's why I remembered the turning the clothes inside out thing."

The woman recalled, "I was scared when she laughed. When she laughed, I don't think I've words in the English language for it. I had never heard someone laugh like that. I knew something was really wrong. I just got this really bad feeling that things were not going to end well for me if I didn't do something."

"I wasn't scared until then. When she laughed, I knew something was very wrong. A lot of people have said that it was a 'stray sod'."

The woman says that she always believed in the stories of fairies she heard as they would be nice and not malicious and, "that collectively as a nation we often acknowledge it as a thing. I don't know where all the extra steps on my Fitbit came from. I was surprised by the number of people that it had happened to."

"We may not believe but we still don't ever want to run the risk. I think I just got unlucky. I've been in those woods before. People were saying that the two trees on the path were a portal. I've no massive opinion but something really weird happened. We do so many things on a daily basis instinctively."

"There are open fields but every so often there will be a ring of trees in the middle of a field. They will plough around them. Even with our modern farming equipment, they still plough around those trees."

The woman doesn't go into detail as to what forest or and identify markers in the area of the incident.

The story is interestingly not that far from a lot of the near Missing 411 cases around getting lost an confused but in this case there was no mention of 'The Silence' but of a menacing laughter.
