Irish Ghost Story

Stumble Upon Toolbar

This story happened a while ago in Dublin , and even though it sounds like
an Alfred Hitchcock tale, its said to be true!!!!!

John Bradford, a Dublin University student, was on the side of the road
hitchhiking on a very dark night and in the midst of a big storm.

The night was rolling on and no car went by. The storm was so strong he
could hardly see a few feet ahead of him. Suddenly, he saw a car slowly
coming towards him and stopped. John, desperate for shelter and without
thinking about it, got into the car and closed the door.. only to realise
there was nobody behind the wheel and the engine wasn't on

The car started moving slowly. John looked at the road ahead and saw a
bend approaching. Scared, he started to pray, begging for his life. Then,
just before the car hit the bend, a hand appeared out of nowhere through
the window and turned the wheel. John, paralysed with terror, watched as
the hand came through the window, but never touched or harmed him.

Shortly thereafter John saw the lights of a pub appear down the road, so,
gathering strength, he jumped out of the car and ran to it. Wet and out of
breath, he rushed inside and started telling everybody about the horrible
experience he had just had.

A silence enveloped the pub when everybody realised he was crying
and....wasn't drunk.

Suddenly, the door opened, and two other people walked in from the dark
and stormy night. They, like John, were also soaked and out of breath.
Looking around, and seeing John Bradford sobbing at the bar, one said to
the other...

'Look Paddy.....there's that fooking idiot that got in the car while
we were pushing it!!!!'
