Silent Cities - Ireland, 1796

In October 1796, the visage of a walled town appeared to residents in Youghal, Ireland. It was dismissed as a mirage. The mirage reappeared in March, 1797. Then, in June 1801, Youghal residents reported the mirage of an entire, and completely unknown, city. The city was filled with mansions surrounded by shrubbery. A forest spread behind it.
