JUNE 1914, SPIKE ISLAND, COUNTY CORK, IRELAND, A CHILD:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

The author of a "Faery" book reportedly indicated that in Spike Island, Cork Harbor, Ireland, in June 1914, in the afternoon, a 6-year-old girl walking along a path located next to the sea, absorbed in her past time with her eyes mostly on the ground looked up when she was about five yards away from the wall of local doctor's house and saw something bizarre.

A strange figure was looking over the all across the harbor to Cobh. She walked a few more steps nearer before she realized what it was, and then she froze with fear.

It was not more than ten paces away and she could see it clearly. It must have been a very tall creature because she could almost see it to its waist, and the wall was at least 5 feet high.

It was in the rough shape of a human being, that is, it had a head and shoulders and arms, though she did not see the hands, which were behind the wall.

It had two "dark caverns" for eyes, the rest was of one color, a sort of glistening yellow.

As the wall was parallel to the road and on her left, the thing was looking past her, across the little road and straight across to Cobh.

As the girl stood petrified, the thing began to turn its head very slowly toward her. At this point the young witness heard a voice in her ear: "If it looks straight at you, Eileen, you will die." Her feet seemed to be anchored to the ground by heavy weights, but somehow she managed to turn and run.

She ran into a nearby cottage about 15 yards away, and her next memory was of Mrs. Reilly, the owner of the cottage, sponging her face with water, as she shook all over with shock and terror.

She told Mrs. Reilly that she had seen something dreadful in the Doctor's garden, and Mrs. Reilly told her that she was not the first to see it and would not be the last.

Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates that in Spike Island, Cork Harbor, Ireland, in June 1914, in the afternoon, "The 6-year old witness walking along a path located next to the sea, absorbed in her past time with her eyes mostly on the ground she happened to look up when she was about five yards away from the wall of local doctor's house and saw something bizarre. A strange figure was looking over the all across the harbor to Cobh. She walked a few more steps nearer before she realized that what it was, and then she became rooted to the ground with fear. It was not ten paces away and she could see it only to clearly. It must have been a very tall creature that was looking over the wall, because she could almost see it to its waist---and the wall was at least five feet high. It was in the rough shape of a human being---that is, it had a head and shoulders and arms---though she did not see the hands, which were behind the wall. Except for two dark caverns, which represented the eyes, the whole thing was of one color, a sort of glistening yellow. As the wall was parallel to the road and on her left, the thing was looking past her---across the little road and straight across to Cobh. As the witness stood petrified, the thing began to turn its head very slowly toward her. At this point the young witness heard a voice in her ear---"If it looks straight at you, Eileen, you will die." Her feet seemed to be anchored to the ground by heavy weights, but somehow she managed to turn and run. She ran into a nearby cottage about 15 yards away. Her next memory was of Mrs. Reilly (the owner of the cottage) sponging her face with water, as she shook all over with shock and terror. She told Mrs. Reilly that she had seen something dreadful in the Doctor's garden. Mrs. Reilly told the young witness that she was not the first to see it and would not be the last."

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is Dermot Mac Manus, "The Middle Kingdom".

He comments that "It has become painfully clear that there exists in our midst terribly entities with boundless powers, we must thread lightly upon encountering them."

[Ref. ud1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website says that in June 1914 at "15:00" in Spike Island, Cork Harbor, Ireland, "The 6-year old witness walking along a path located next to the sea, absorbed in her past time with her eyes mostly on the ground she happened to look up when she was about five yards away from the wall of local doctor's house and saw something bizarre. A strange figure was looking over the all across the harbor to Cobh. She walked a few more steps nearer before she realized that what it was, and then she became rooted to the ground with fear. It was not ten paces away and she could see it only to clearly. It must have been a very tall creature that was looking over the wall, because she could almost see it to its waist---and the wall was at least five feet high. It was in the rough shape of a human being---that is, it had a head and shoulders and arms---though she did not see the hands, which were behind the wall. Except for two dark caverns, which represented the eyes, the whole thing was of one color, a sort of glistening yellow.

The source indication is a broken link.

Points to consider:

In his book "Middle Kingdom: The Faerie World of Ireland", Diarmuid A. MacManus tells Irish fairy stories he collected in his family and from other people.

There was a military hospital in Spike Island. Was the child terribly frightened by a seriously injured soldier treated there? Did it create a story, distorted from source to source?
