This is not a ghost story as much as it is an experience I can get no information about.
I live 3 miles away from Loughcrew Cairns. The Cairns are megalithic structures originally built about 4000 bc as burial chambers. Myself and two friends took it upon us lately to walk up it every or most days to loose weight as the climb up to it is very steep. Its a very good workout and when you get to the top you have an overwhelming view of the country from one of its highest peaks.
The days turned into evenings as our children would be in bed and it was easier to get somebody to watch them for an hour when they were in bed. The evenings get dark from 8 onwards so by the time we hit the peak it would be dark. We would usually do 2 climbs in the one evening. When we climbed in the dark, although we brought torches we would be a bit creeped out as it was an ancient burial ground and also because we thought it would be a haven for drug dealers as it is remote!
Our "fitter" friend would always show off by going 6 steps ahead of us and pant quietly to herself.
The first night we went up it was dark, we had our torches. When we got as high as the peak we would always walk into the burial ground and do a lap around. The only way you will know what it looks like is if you google image Loughcrew Cairns. There are 4 or 5 standing stones in circles which were graves then the major one in the middle.
We walked by the first of the group of standing stones and myself and my fellow "unfit" friend heard a loud male voice. It was loud but whatever he said was unrecognisable. None of us were talking and we turned to each other asking what we thought he said. We, hastily, said " HELLO?" after a few minutes of explaining to our fit friend who didn't hear it because she was about 8 - 10 foot in front of us, probably singing to herself in her own head! Also being up that high is extremely windy. We frantically ran down the mountain because we were just totally creeped out.
The next day was a beautiful day, neither of us were working so we said we would take on the mountain early and attempt to bring the kids. (we ended up carrying them the whole way up) When we got to the standing stones we had found flowers shredded in the stone circles with 3 - 4 smaller stone circles, obviously hand made inside the graves. The small stone circles were not in there the day before as we did climb it everyday. These flowers and stones circles were in all five.
My friend said don't walk in them as your upsetting the fairies or disturbing the dead spirits.
Does anybody know what these stone circles could possibly have been?
Thanks for reading.
