On the Hook Peninsula, in the County Wexford of Ireland sits a building called Loftus Hall which is said to be haunted by Satan himself.
Loftus Hall was built by the Redmond family in 1350 and later became the property of the Loftus family in the year 1666. Imagine that.
In the mid-1800's, a man named Charles Tottenham and his family came to live in Loftus Mansion. One cold, rainy night, a man on horseback came to the door and asked if he could stay the night since the weather was so bad. The family agreed and asked the man to join them in a game of cards. During the card game, one of Charles's daughters dropped a card under the table, when she reached down to pick the card up, she the man's feet which weren't feet at all but hooves. She screamed in horror and the creature jumped straight up through the roof in a cloud of fire and smoke. People say that no matter what construction was done to fix the hole, it could never be patched properly and to this day the ceiling still looks totally different in that spot.
Charles was so disturbed by the happening that he called upon Father Thomas Broaders to exorcise his home. Thomas Broader's tombstone still stands to this day and on it is written, "Here lies the body of Thomas Broaders, who did good, and prayed for all, and who banished the devil from Loftus Hall."
