If were I live had been built on a cemetery then surely even the ghosts/spirits would have left by now due to the junkies and wino's.

I really could give a damn, I would live in the middle of Glasnevin cemetery if the rent was right. I have absolutely no belief in spirits, ghosts, life after death, none of that crap.

I have camped up on my own in lonely and so called spooky places and i have slept in a supposedly haunted room and i slept like a log.

Except once I had the total bejaysus frightened out of me when i awoke to a presence around my tent, I stuck my head out and my eyes adjusted and it was a big fukcen cow.

A lot of houses in my area are built on the site of a workhouse, part of which was a graveyard, though there are no houses built directly over the graveyard afaik

Never thought anything of it untill get started getting a slight smell of stale cigarette smoke.

It would be right in front of the bathroom door, and I mean right in front of it not to the sides f it, you could walk right by and smell it then its gone once you passed the door. Friends of ours have gotten some weird feelings in the bathroom and the last time one of them was in having a shower and just as she came out she thought the saw someone walking into the room beside the bathroom, she thought it was my wife so she went in to her but there was no one in the room, she said it freaked her out big time.

So in short my house is somewhat haunted but nothing I can do about it and no harm has come to anyone living here so happy days.
Were the builders Staffords or Fanagans ?

If you really think about it;
the Earth's some 4.5 billion years old, has proven life existence for at least 500 million years.
By now millions of things have since died on the ground under your feet, if there was anything that continued after death, surly we'd have seen it!

It wouldn't bother me but at the same time I wouldn't trust my imagination to act rationally to late night noises.

As one of my former, mental colleagues said to me once "The dead can't hurt you it's the living you need to be scared of" as he looked at me with those real scary eyes ....... Thankfully I changed jobs a short time later.

Why would I be worried? Sure we burn the remains of million year old dead things to drive to Tesco to buy a naggin. It's grand.
