A television production team involving a Leixlip based woman has found some odd things in Leixlip Castle.

Last June, Stephanie Mulvany Cunningham, from Avondale Estate, Leixlip, completed a pilot programme, with fellow TV worker, Gordon Hayden, exploring paranormal life, ghosts, Irish myths and legends and other unexplained phenomena.

The UnXplained Ireland pilot was screened on TV3 last nightand will be on 3e at midnight, on Halloween, 31 October.

Stephanie was delighted that the owners of the historic Leixlip Castle, Desmond and Penny Guinness gave them the goahead to check out the Castle, and the result forms the opening opening story of the pilot.

Tim Kelly from Irish Ghost Hunters, Angie Freeland physic medium and Keith Freeland parapsychologist were involved in the making of the programme.

“They found some things which cannot be explained,” said Stephanie, who is a niece of well known Leixlip man, “Gunner Hynes,” and married to Matt Cunningham.

“It was an amazing investigation,” she added.

Stephanie said the plan is to make a series of progreammes which will shed light on some of Ireland’s paranormal life and not so paranormal life including the strange unsettling story of Ireland’s most famous witch, Dame Alice Kyteler from Kilkenny.

The programme also features Seanchaí Eddie Lenihan who reveals the superstitions around mythical creatures such as fairies.
