An Irish father who wanted to record a video of his snowy road is now sure he captured supernatural audio.

Lurgan native John Coghlan was left speechless after listening back to the above video, which he claims recorded voices that were not there when he filmed it.

The video was originally shared on his daughter Stacey's Facebook page, where it has been viewed more than 42k times.

"I believe it's a spirit passing and yes I'm a little worried," Stacey told Independent.ie.

"My dad isn't worried about it at all as he has heard and seen many things in his home before."

Stacey said that the house television has turned itself on and off overnight on many occasions, but claims her dad has had one very eerie experience in his house.

"About seven or eight months ago, he was in bed and couldn't sleep and when he turned and looked at the left side of the room there was a man sitting there.

"Then the man just got up and walked out into the hall, without a sound, but dad went to check the hall and nothing was there."

People who have commented on the video also seem to be spooked by what they heard, with one saying: "I’d be flooding the house with holy water after that."

Another wrote "I'd be having heart failure that's so frightening" and another said "I'm never videoing again after that".

Previously, the Cork Supernatural Society (CSS) told the Irish Independent that noises that seem like they could be otherworldly actually have a far more rational source.

"We have a number of Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP) recorded from our investigations - these are basically voice-like sounds that respond to specific questions asked out loud in the property by the team," Jackie Clarke, from CSS, said

"You'd be surprised how much noise you can explain from plumbing and heating systems."
