Any of the locals up around Irishtown way know the where abouts of "Haunted Rock", where the ghost of a man, from a century ago, wearing work clothes and holding a latern can be seen.

We understand it may be located off old Irishtown Road on the State Gamelands.

Any help in directions to this area would be appreciated.

It's has been written about in the book, County Chronicles of Fayette County, I think.

Bob Martin lives near the Irish Town Sportsman Grounds on Hardy Hill Road on the right side of the road. He knows where the rock can be found.

So then Haunted Rock or Ghost Rock is on the right side of the road after the first bend and is not the big boulders on the hill side on the left side of the road.?

Thanks for all the replies

The old Hennesy School. Is it located on out that road just to the left before you cross Irishtown Run? Lots of remains of ols stone walls in there.
