Jordan Moore, a forward for football teams such as Dundee United, Airedrie United and Queen’s Park and who also battled skin cancer in 2014 was back in the news today for the  strange events he claims to have had while trying to rejuvenate his career  while recently playing for Limerick in Ireland.

Moore claims that a man threatened to ‘send him home in a box’ if he broke a treadmill, that the local pub was run by the mob and that the club would pay him some of his wages he was owed for playing by getting change from the club burger van!

Although some in Limerick have accused Moore of an overactive imagination about their home and making up stories to explain why he left Limerick and went back to Scotland, Moore also talked about how the old convent the club had him stay in was haunted and that a nun had committed suicide in the very room he slept in!

Birkwood Castle, located  in  Lanarkshire, Scotland is reputed to be one of the most haunted locations in the UK.

Built in 1860, the castle became a psychiatric hospital in 1923 and was used as such until 2002. The building also had facilities for working with mentally disabled children.

Incidents reported at the location include a doctor who died of a heart attack at the hospital being spotted in a window from outside, footsteps heard down the corridors, a boy reportedly named ‘Mike’ or ‘Micheal’ riding a bike on the property as well as being the near the stairwell where he fell to his death, smells of cigar smoke and lights being turned on and off while the hospital was still in service and the ghost of one Henrik Richardson, who was said to have been stabbed in throat and died from that injury while at the location.

The castle was going to be turned into a leisure center in 2011 but that fell through.

In 2014 Birkwood Castle was featured on the television series Haunted Planet.

Recently the castle was undergoing renovations to be turned into a hotel and some apartments…that is until the ghostly residents of Birkwood decided this was not going to happen and instead destroyed Birkwood instead.
