Castle Daly is a ruined mansion near Gort in County Galway. It was once the home of the Daly family, a prominent Anglo-Irish clan that ruled over the region for centuries.

The castle was known for its lavish parties and extravagant lifestyle. But behind the glamour and wealth, there was a dark side to Daly Castle. According to local legend, the castle is haunted by the ghosts of its former inhabitants and guests, who relive their final moments of terror and agony over and over again.

One of the most famous stories about Castle Daly involves a party that took place in the late 19th century. The Dalys invited some of their friends and neighbours to celebrate their daughter’s engagement. The party was a grand affair, with music, dancing, food and drink. The guests enjoyed themselves until midnight, when a terrible storm broke out. The wind howled, the rain poured and the thunder roared. The guests decided to stay overnight at the castle, hoping that the weather would improve by morning.

But as they settled in their rooms, they heard a strange noise coming from downstairs. It sounded like the party was still going on, with laughter, chatter and clinking glasses. Curious, some of the guests went down to investigate. To their horror, they saw a scene of carnage and chaos. The dining room was splattered with blood, the furniture was smashed and the bodies of the Dalys and their servants were strewn across the floor. They had been brutally murdered by a group of rebels who had stormed the castle during the storm.

Ever since then, people have reported hearing and seeing strange things at Castle Daly. Some say they can hear the sound of a party coming from the ruins, with music, laughter and clinking glasses. Others say they can see ghostly figures dancing in the moonlight, dressed in elegant gowns and suits. And others say they can hear screams and cries for help, followed by silence.

Some believe that these are the echoes of the tragic party that ended in disaster. They say that the ghosts of Castle Daly are trapped in a loop of time, repeating their last night on earth over and over again. They say that they are waiting for someone to free them from their torment.
