Ireland Report / Story
Councillors in Antrim and Newtownabbey have given approval for the requests to allow a paranormal investigation group to investigate a Victorian farmhouse called Sentry Hill and at Clotworthy House in Antrim.

Country Antrim Paranormal Research Association (CAPRA) who will be running the investigations said that it would consist of using equipment which detects temperature anomalies.

Clotworthy House, an arts centre and formerly a stable in Antrim Castle Gardens, was established in 1843. Macedon DUP Councillor Victor Robinson approved the investigations, which was seconded by Macedon DUP Councillor Mark Cooper BEM.

Macedon Alliance Councillor Billy Webb MBE asked how it would affect the use of the two buildings saying,
"I think this is nonsense but if something is identified, could it have an impact on our buildings if something is detected?"

When asked about the positive or negative aspects of letting a paranormal team investigate the locations, Simon Goldrick, head of arts and culture stated that claims of ghosts at the Grand Opera House led to a rise in visitor numbers.

Further to this, Glengormley DUP Councillor Alison Bennington asked for the results of the previous paranormal investigation at Mossley Mill.

In 2017, the council granted permission to Ballyclare Paranormal Society to conduct an investigation into any paranormal activity at Ballyclare Town Hall. And in 2011, Mossley Mill attracted the attention of North Belfast Paranormal Research Group which approached Newtownabbey Borough Council for access at night to both the building and grounds.

These two investigations will be conducted with Historian and Author Lyndsy Spence.
