Mom captures ghost in photo while walking with her kids

An Irish mum has captured a clear snap of what looks like a ghost soldier in a candid family picture of her young son and daughter taken on a walk in Derry.

Gerri Moran took the creepy snap on her mobile phone while out walking along a disused railway line - but didn't spot the eerie ghost soldier until she got back home.

The 34-year-old mother's two kids were running through a wooded area close to the River Foyle, near the Derry/Donegal border when she captured the spooky snap, Belfast Live reports.

But after Gerri she got home and went through the snaps, she noticed a very spooky face looking back at her.
 
“After our walk I was looking through all the photos I had taken and noticed a kind of shadow or disturbance in front of my son Finn,” said Gerri, from Derry.


“When I looked closer I couldn't believe what I saw, it looked like a man – to me it looked like a soldier - standing there beside the tree. None of us

saw anything when we were walking past the tree, there was nothing there to see. The kids didn't notice anything and weren't afraid or anything. It really freaked me out when I saw it at home on my phone.
"The kids want to head back out there again this week for a walk."



Derry historian Ken McCormack says the area that the ghostly figure was captured was, at one stage, heaving with British military as it was near the border and could, in fact be the spirit of a very famous poet who frequented the area before WWI.

“To me this figure looks like an officer,” he said. “He has the look of a British soldier about him. Not far from where the spirit was captured is Government House, where Lord Dunsany would have lived.

"A close friend of his, the famous poet, Francis Ledwige would have stayed with him often and wrote many poems about the beauty of the area. He felt at home there. He was killed after a mine blew up beside him during fighting in Belgium in 1917. He was just 29-years-old.
