New Ross to Host Paranormal Convention “Day of the Unexplained”


Some of the biggest names in the paranormal industry will descend on New Ross in February next year, for the first-ever paranormal convention.

The event will take place at St Michael’s Theater on February 18.

The “Day of the Unexplained” convention is the brainchild of Anthony Joseph Kerrigan of GhostEire and local resident Mary Nolan – of Back In Time Paranormal Investigators.

Anthony and Mary have spent many years in the field of paranormal investigation and felt that a one day convention where like minded people could meet, network and explore all things paranormal was much needed.

“It’s the coming together of the paranormal and spiritual community,” Mary said. “It’s an opportunity to hear about our haunted history, ghost stories, witchcraft and even UFOs.

“Have you ever had that burning desire to find out more about something unexplained, but you didn’t know where to go or who to ask? “Day of the Unexplained” was created for open discussions about spirits, ghosts, the paranormal, crystals, the supernatural, hauntings, stories, aliens, witchcraft and UFOs. There really is something here for everyone,” said Mary.

Throughout the day-long event, audiences will meet a diverse range of speakers who will be more than happy to speak and share stories of investigations and personal experiences.

“Here they will pass on their knowledge and offer the opportunity for a Q&A session after each speaker. Whether you are an armchair enthusiast and hobbyist or a first-hand experiencer, there really is something here. There will be psychics and psychics on hand during the day for private readings as well as an array of paranormal gear, books, crystals and other merchandise available for purchase.
