I was expecting to be writing tonight about the first day of the trial of Thomas Barrett but it’s been put off to a later date so I’m left with a quandary about what to write.
I doubt if anyone out there would be interested in my quest to find the cat a suitable comb to get rid of the prodigious amounts of hair she’s leaving anywhere within a two mile radius at the moment (although I must admit I did tweet about that this afternoon – I’m not usually that inane honestly).
Normally when I check in on my blog the first thing I do is check my stats. I’m endlessly fascinated by what brings people here and if and why they come back. Surprisingly not everyone seems to be a true crime buff since that’s my main topic of conversation here. The search results that have brought people to this blog can be bizarre at the best of times but are often illuminating.
Today for example they gave me an idea about what to write about. I’d forgotten about the strange lights over Dublin one last night week…until I saw that several people had arrived looking for information into just that.
Now I can’t offer any information. They were strange lights all right. Both myself and the husband saw them and watched them for several minutes until they very suddenly disappeared. At 12.50 a.m on June 12th I sent the first tweet below.
Ok that was weird. Sitting watching a late film & both myself & @Aperture11 saw 2 strange lights in the sky. Which then disappeared!

They were very bright, one directly on top of the other & perfectly still. Over central Dublin. Now gone! Very odd indeed! — abigailrieley (@abigailrieley) June 11, 2009
But seriously why would UFO’s target the north inner city of Dublin? Seriously? — abigailrieley (@abigailrieley) June 11, 2009
I didn’t get any replies (well it was rather late) so I don’t know if anyone else saw them but I’m guessing from the search terms people used to find this blog we weren’t the only ones who did after all. If anyone out there knows where the lights were some kind of weather balloon, military test, over-zealous night club lighting or anything with a rational explanation, please let me know.
Maybe there’s a reason, maybe it’s just one of those totally random things that occasionally happen in Dublin. If you know what they were, or if I find out anything more, I’ll update this post and put everyone’s minds at rest that there is no alien invasion…unless…
