Dublin, Northern Ireland (Dublin) – A visitor to the former Irish Parliament buildings in Dublin, where the Queen was buried in 1998, has told of being taken to a bar after the Queen’s funeral in the early hours of July 5, 1872.
The visitor, whose name has been withheld to protect her identity, was taken to the park where the last meal was held, in Lincoln Street, on July 5.
She told RTE that she felt quite ill after the last drink and that she then took her shoes off and went home.
She said: “I remember feeling quite sick and was really worried about how I would react.”
“Then the next thing I remember was that the sun was out and the wind was blowing very cold.”
It was very cold and I was just freezing cold and the door was shut.
“The visitor was taken home and given a drink, which she was told was “tasteless”.
She was then told that there was no one else in the park, so she went back to the Queen.
She said: “I remember thinking, ‘Oh God, I’m going to die’.”
She said that after being taken home she went to her bedroom and went to sleep.
When she woke up, she remembered feeling very ill and then she heard the wind and the sun.
She went to the garden to get some tea and that was the first time she saw her family.
The visitor said:”I was in a lot of shock and couldn’t say much.
I remember looking at my mum and thinking she was going to kill herself.
“She went back into the park and went for a walk, where she said she was approached by a man.
The man said:’I’ll kill you if you ever come back here again.’
She left the park without saying anything, but then returned and asked him what he was doing.
The tourist said: “I said to him, ‘Why are you doing this to me?'”
She said she then heard a knock on the door.
She ran back to her room and went downstairs.
She said the man came up to her and said: ‘I’ll come back again’.
The visitor continued:”He was like, ‘You’re the one who was going down to the Royal Lough in 1872 and you’re going to come back tonight, you’re dead’.”
The woman then told the man:’You’re going back to hell.
You’ll never get out of here alive.’
She said her mother came down and told her what had happened and that her daughter was taken away.
She told the woman that the man was the same man who had attacked her mother and then murdered her in the gardens of their home.
The woman said: [The man] then left the house.
I’ve never seen my mother and [her daughter] in my life and she never talked to me again.”
The woman also told the visitor that her sister-in-law had been the Queen of Ireland and that he had been in the Queen Anne lodges in Dublin at the time of the attack.
She added:”She never told me about her death.”
