MOURNERS in Ireland couldn’t believe it when they heard a voice beyond the grave at a local man’s funeral.
Those who attended the funeral on on Saturday in Kilmanagh, Leinster, of Irish Defence Force veteran Shay Bradley, who passed away after suffering from a long illness, couldn’t believe it when he started speaking to them from his coffin.
As they watched his coffin being buried his voice could be heard shouting: ‘Hello, hello. Let me out.’
The recording continues with the sound of him knocking on the wood of the coffin, saying: ‘Where the f*** am I? Let me out, let me out. It’s f – ing dark in here. Is that the priest I can hear. This is Shay I’m in the box. No in f – ing front of you. I’m dead.’
Shay then sings: ‘Hello again hello, hello I just called to say goodbye.’
Shay’s daughter Andrea said that the message was recorded before he died and put out via a speaker on the ground. She said on Twitter: ‘He would love to know how many people he made laugh!!! He was an amazing character
Mourners were in stitches as Shay, who passed on October 8 following a long illness, had the last laugh in saying his final goodbye.
