Eerie Glow, Eerie Glow, Eerie Glow




A cracked traffic light on the junction of Blarney Street and Shanakiel Road [Cork] is casting an eerie glow onto the face of Christ on the cross at the adjacent grotto.

Believed to have appeared on the weekend of Corpus Christi, the site has now attracted people to pray there after dark, when the light is most prominent.

‘Local man Terry’ said:

“The light crosses the road, goes up at a 45 degree angle. It starts out as a pin and then it gets bigger like a projector and shines up onto the cross. It picks out only the figure on the cross.”

    “It starts out as a pin and then it gets bigger like a projector and shines up”

    * closes doors and windows, leaving lights out…. turns on torch… which shines up a section of wall *

    * falls to knees and declares * It’s a miracle !

    “It picks out only the figure on the cross.”

    Eh yeah because there is nothing around the figure to pick out and the wooden cross is dark wood and therefore not reflective like the statue.

    For Phug Sake.

    Probably handbagged scarf wearing women and men with flat caps that’d be going there. Rosary beads a swinging that take the eye clean out of yer head. Corkonians love their religious statues, Council will be vilified when they fix the traffic light.

    Is it just Cork Christians that are idiots, or are all Christians idiots? Or maybe just Cork people in general? I’d also question local loon Terry’s ability to judge angles. If the light crosses the road at a 45 degree angle, then the cross would have to be 30m tall. More likely the light shines straight across the road, as light from a horizontal lamp tends to do.
