Footage of an alleged UFO, which was filmed in Co Meath by a senior garda two months ago, is to be the main attraction of Ireland's first Paranormal Convention. The footage, filmed on a camera phone over Dunboyne on 3 August, will be shown to hundreds of UFO enthusiasts expected at the event in Clontarf Castle, Dublin next weekend.
"What we have is the best film of a UFO ever filmed in Ireland and perhaps some of the best footage ever captured worldwide," said Carl Nally, co-founder of UFO and Paranormal Research Ireland.
"The man involved is a high-ranking garda from Portlaoise. He was on his way back there from Dunboyne on 3 August at about 10.45pm when he spotted four triangular UFOs travelling over his head.
"It was such an amazing sight that he jumped out of his car and began filming the objects on his camera phone. What he caught was the fourth triangular shaped UFO , turning anti-clockwise before shooting a beam down towards the Earth. It then can be seen flying off following the other UFOs in a northwest direction."
Nally says he has had interest in the footage from as far afield as Australia with various TV companies in touch looking for the footage to be made available for documentaries.
A joint author of best selling Irish UFO book Conspiracy of Silence, Nally says the senior garda joins other credible witnesses, including an airline pilot and a town councillor, who all claim to have seen recent UFO activity in the skies around north Dublin and Meath.
These UFO witnesses are expected to talk about their experiences at the Clontarf convention. "People are becoming more open when it comes to discussing their supernatural and UFO experiences and we want to give these people a chance to meet others and ask questions," said Mark Guerin, the conference's organiser.
