In 1897, several astounding discoveries were unearthed at Leap Castle in Ireland, one of them was tied to a haunting that had plagued the castle for centuries.
The following is an excerpt of an article that appeared in The Democrat Chronicle newspaper in 1897, titled "Discoveries in Leap Castle".
A series of interesting “finds” just discovered in the historic Leap castle are described as first, an 11th century stone spiral staircase springing from the first floor level and terminating at the summit of the great tower, 100 feet high. The finely cut stone steps are laid with mathematical accuracy and are large, like the passage itself. The O’Carrolls, princes of Ely, whose chief stronghold this castle was, were all big men, in face, a race of giants, as the few relics of them extant attest.
