IT may not bode well for the superstitious – but Cork is set to host the 13th annual World Ghost Convention.
The event, which will officially be opened by the city’s Lord Mayor, is expected to attract hundreds of visitors to the city.
Supernatural and spooky events will be discussed at a variety of talks given by experts in the field.
It will also give those who have experienced supernatural events first hand to share their experiences and discuss it with others.
The atmospheric 19th Century Cork City Goal will play host to the event.
The annual event began in 2001 and is entirely self-funded and non-for-profit, and fully staffed by volunteers.
