Ghost filmed at Shaws Bay Hotel believed to be "Little Sarah"

UPDATE: MANY people who have viewed the video of the strange shape captured on CCTV at the Shaws Bay Hotel believe it might be the ghost of "Little Sarah".

"Little Sarah" was the daughter of Captain Thomas Fenwick, who built the historic and notoriously spooky Fenwick House next door to the Shaws Bay Hotel in east Ballina.

Sarah Fenwick was seven months old when she died in the manor in 1887.

One Facebook user wrote: "Her name is Sarah. She used to live in the house when we were living there and move around in the cedar bar down stairs."

Another said: "'s Sarah! Some weird things used to happen when we lived in the house next door...alarm would set itself off, doors open without anyone there..super spooky!"

More footage of "The Shawsy Ghost" has been posted on the Shaws Bay Hotel Facebook page.
