No matter how sceptical you are when it comes to all things supernatural, this video might just give you pause for thought.
Filmed by Ashling Murphy, it shows some eerie goings-on in the kitchen of her aunt’s house in Cork City.
And it definitely seems to have caught people’s attention - the original Facebook video - with the caption "it’s getting way worse I defo have to move house" - has been watched more than eight million times and shared by over 170,000 people since being uploaded yesterday.
While it is pretty freaky, it could, of course, be a hoax.
Aisling uploaded a second longer video of the haunting on September 14th where it garnered 119,000 views on YouTube but the viewers weren’t convinced.
Commenters on that video pointed out that it is possible to spot some fishing wire attached to the swinging lampshade. And in the other video, they point out that wire can also be seen by the cupboard in the bottom right corner at 1.05 - although Aisling insists that it’s a phone charger.

So what do you think? Genuine poltergeist or someone having a laugh?
We’re going with prank although it still spooked us out - and with Hallowe’en coming up, we need more of that.
Oh and the parodies have already started too.
