Convention finds perfect haunt for its paranormal activity . . .

The country's biggest ghost festival opened last night for the Halloween weekend.
The 10th annual World Ghost Convention is taking place in Cork with hundreds set to sign up for ghost walks, psychic lectures, spooky stories and tips on how to "sense the spirits" and even communicate with angels.
The event takes place, fittingly enough, in Cork Gaol, which is thought by many to be haunted.
The star speaker this year's convention is Helen Barrett, better known as the White Witch of the Isles.
Ms Barrett -- from Cobh, Co Cork -- is leader of Ireland's 3,500 witches and warlocks.
The convention will also feature special contributions from University College Cork's Department of Folklore.
