This discussion reminds me of a nice Irish family who lived in my neighborhood. I went to school with two of the family members, both pre-teen sisters. Beautiful girls. Apparently, the family started experiencing unusual activity in their house. A new home, recently built on what were swampy wooded land. The sisters weren't allowed to talk about it at school or outside the home, but let it slip. Word got around that they were experiencing a poltergeist. The parents had a priest come in and bless the home. I have no idea if that had any effect, or how long the activity continued. Considering this took place a few years before the film "Poltergeist" had been released, I tend to think something occurred there as I had never heard that word used to describe a haunting before this. Soon after, the family moved from the home and a new family moved in. After some time, I asked one of the new family members if they experienced anything occurring in the home (teen brother and sister) and they reported no activity. I always wondered what type of activity the previous family had to deal with, but the sisters never released any details to us kids.
