UFO sightings recorded closer to Dublin as Ireland becomes hotbed of alien activity

The sightings of UFOs over the coast by three sets of airline pilots has led to Ireland being seen as a hotbed of alien activity.

It has emerged the crews who reported an unidentified object streaking through the skies over Co Kerry are not alone.

Dublin Live has been inundated with reports of similar sightings around the country in recent weeks.

The Irish Aviation Authority has begun an investigation into the appearance of the mysterious objects which were first spotted by a British Airways pilot early last Friday.

But at around 4.30pm the next day Donal Brady reported another strange sighting while looking towards Cork city from Bishopstown.

He said: “I don’t know what it was. I was at my friend’s house and I’d just dropped off my daughter and stepped out to have a cigarette and just noticed this thing in the sky.

“It was extremely bright, a beautiful day. At first I thought it was a high-altitude airliner reflecting in the sun.

“I observed it for a minute or two and I noticed it was stopping, hovering and moving side to side.

“It wasn’t going in a straight line and it wasn’t going away from and wasn’t coming towards me.

“Then along came this plane and it wasn’t reflecting anything and I thought that was unusual.

“That’s when I started to video it. If it was an airliner you’d expect contrails and some lights, which there weren’t.”

Mr Brady thought no more about it until it was reported pilots from British Airways, Virgin and Norwegian Air saw an unidentified object over Co Kerry just before 7am last Friday.

He added: “I watched the video again and thought it was something that might be related to that. I’m not pushing it in any shape or form, it is what it is.”

Another Irish Mirror reader sent in a video of what appears to be a UFO in Co Carlow.

Gerard Pollard said: “On the 2nd November at 8.32am I saw two lights in the sky coming from the south west, over Mount Leinster.

“I thought at first it was an airplane heading to Dublin Airport.

“Then I noticed it was going too fast for a plane. They seemed very high in the sky.

“I took my phone from my belt and took a photo. I enhanced the photo to my iPad and you can just see two small light dots in the sky.

“I can say these two craft were travelling at great speed, but there as no sound from them.”

Meanwhile, Laura Byrne shared pictures of three dots she spotted over Wicklow town.
