This is creepy video appears to show the ghostly apparition of a nun in a Mayo convent moments before it was knocked to the ground.

Viewers claim to see a nun staring out the window at around 18 seconds into the clip, which has been watched more than 11,000 times since it was uploaded to YouTube earlier this month.

The video, which was published by Frame Production, documents the demotion of Claremorris convent, which was opened in 1876.

Although many commenters online are sure it's an otherworldly spectre, Frame Productions Manager Kevin Griffiths is not as convinced.

"I’m amused at how people have taken it. I’m not buying it, but the great thing is that it’s started a story," he told Independent.ie

"As far as I’m concerned, it’s not a ghost. That’s just my opinion.  Some people say it’s a man."
