My great grandad was known as a strange man. He used to tell his children about scary things that happened to him in the past but they didn't believe him.
One night him and his wife woke up to the sound of moaning and groaning. They went into the sitting room to see what it was, then he said, "Oh no, I think something is wrong with Denis (his son) in England." The next day he got a call saying that his son had died of a heart attack.
A couple of years after he saw his daughter Mary walking up to the door of the house. When he went to open the door no one was there. His wife came in from the kitchen. She just received a phone call saying that their daughter died of a heart attack.
Nearly everyone on my mom's side of the family has seen, heard or witnessed a paranormal experience.
His wife also saw something. While going to work on a old forest path, an old wagon 2-3 times bigger than her rolled out onto the road and stopped. She stood there, not wanting to pass the wagon. Then the wagon started moving again and went back into the forest.
She also used to work for an old woman in Offaly. The rules were no shoes upstairs so she left her shoes downstairs at the bottom of the staircase. As she walked up the stairs the shoes were thrown at her. The only other person in the house was the old lady. She put the shoes back and walked upstairs. Again the shoes were thrown at her. She had no choice but brought the shoes up with her. When she went into the woman's bedroom, she was dead.
