The Faceless Man in the Mountains

 

This next event is one that I am putting on the site for a friend as he would love to know if anyone has an opinion about it or can explain it. Any comments are welcome. I am telling it from his perspective.

This happened about 18 years ago. A friend and I were going to a new nightclub up the Dublin Mountains. For any of you who are familiar with the Dublin Mountains you'll know that up there at night time, there is a colour blacker than black. So we were on our way up and we must have taken a wrong turn and after 45 minutes we decided we were lost.

Over in the distance there was someone sitting on a gate into a field. We decided to go over and ask him. As we grew closer we saw that the figure was only short and it seemed to be rocking back and forth really fast, like it was demented.

We stopped and stared for a minute and we realised there was something freaky going on as it was pitch black and we could see the figure had a glow around it, but there were no street lamps or lights around. We also noticed when we got closer, the figure appeared to have no face, it was like a mannequin face, we than looked around us and we seen the trees blowing furiously, but there was no sound at all, you could have heard a pin drop.

We knew we had to get out of there ASAP so we began to jog backwards (as to not take our eyes off the figure). After about 10 minutes doing so, we heard a "SWOOSHH" and we heard the trees again blowing and we knew we were safe.

We eventually found the nightclub and the rest of the evening was normal. I still can't explain that night but what I do know is that whatever the being was it was not good.

If anyone has experienced the same thing or has a theory behind it please let me know. All comments are checked daily and replied to. Thanks for reading my story.

a Noppera-bō is what that may have been fits the description. Japanese creature of no face. No one knows what they fully are or what they want and in all of written history none of these creatures have really harmed anyone. They more intend to scare. The reason why is unknown but you find the most stories of their kind in japanese stories. Where it was or wasn't doesn't sound a native thing of Dublin to me. Wonder what it was doing there.

I can confirm your paranormal experience.

It happened to me long time ago when I was still a kid (about 5 years old). My grandma used to take me to the kindergarden from my apartment each morning and I remember for a short period of time (about 1 week), I had a man in totally red suit (almost like spiderman red) followed me each day to and from kindergarden. The weird thing was that my grandma never noticed him (he was only 12 feet away).

I remember the last moment I saw him. He stood there in front of me and my grandma facing us while my grandma was trying to open the door to my apartment. He stood there and stared at me and didn't move at all. That was when I realized that he was faceless. (No mouth, no nose, no eyes, no ears)

I was way too young to be scared and didn't know what to do. All I remember was that as soon as my grandma opened the door, I ran in and shut it. I never saw him again.

Now that I'm in my 30's each time I think about it I still think it's creepy.

I've never had anything like that happen to myself but at least two people in my family have had encounters with faceless ghosts and both were pretty chilling, this one was no different.

Hi Dena. Thanks you for sharring your friends story with us. I found it very interesting. I was a little shocked that your friend couldn't hear the leaves when the wind was blowing. I found that very weird. Either it was caused by the fear they felt and actually they couldn't hear it or it was caused by this spirit. I believe that the reason why they didn't see tha mans face was because the spirit couldn't fully manifest. Why was it rocking back and forth very rapidly? I have know Idea. Maybe for the same reason as I said bfore. I realy liked reading your story. Thanks for sharring and I hope you share your other stories soon. I hope to hear from you soon and take care

Almost sounds like you entered a different time dimension. Like a time warp. The absence of sound had to be disturbing. It was like the sound had to catch up to the present to be heard. The figure I have no idea about. Could you have witnessed what they call an elemental? Something that was never human to begin with? I have no idea. While I believe in ghosts which were once human I have a problem with demons,imps, fairies and the like. Too mythical. Even a legend has some truth in it but myths seem just myths and products of the imagination. Great story. If I ever get to Ireland I will be sure to visit the area.

Sounds to be maybe an elemental creature? IDK, this is odd. The woods are full of many different living beings. Have you ever looked up the history of the mtns? Maybe others have seen what you seen. Take care & thanks for posting!

Hi Dena,
Thanks for posting your friends story. I enjoyed reading it. I have been to the Dublin Mountains at night time. It certainly is creepy and completely pitch black! I haven't been to the Hellfire Club but I'd love to go see it (during the day though, as my friends won't go at night!)
Can't wait to read more of your posts!
😊 ❀ 😊

Wow Dena! What a very freaky experience. Its weird how you couldn't hear the wind in the trees when you were near the figure. This is very creepy indeed, I am glad you didn't attract its attention. Scary stuff! Looking forward to your next post. I have heard of the Hellfire club but I don't know all the details. I grew up in Dublin but I have never had an experience.
Take care! 😁

Hi Dena-that was a frightening encounter you had that day!

It doesn't seem as if you had encountered a human entity that day. The description of the figure rocking back and forth fast gave me goose-bumps!
