The Black Nun of Bonamargy

The ghost of Julia MacQuillen – also known as “the black nun” – is said to haunt the ruins of Bonamargy Friary in Antrim. Those who have encountered her have reported feelings of peace and wellbeing during and after their experiences, but does a malevolent entity also roam these isolated grounds?

Locals have reported hearing strange noises when walking through the deserted ruins, and the lady herself – dressed in her black robe – has been sighted on the stairs where she died and wandering through the grounds of her home. Witnesses have also seen her peering through the window on the upper floor.
