Flying Saucer Seen in County Kerry - Old Newspaper Clipping
UFO Newspaper Clipping
Published: 1:46 PM 7/12/2013

An interesting piece of Irish curio was unearthed by the Irish blog Broadsheet this week in the shape of an Irish Times clipping from July 12, 1947. The clipping’s headline reads:

“Flying Saucer Seen in County Kerry”

Now an international hobby, UFOs and flying saucers are spotted on a daily basis around the globe and the existence of aliens is debated across the Internet, but what is curious about this report is that it was published three days after the Roswell UFO Incident.

The sighting at Cahirciveen, County Kerry, was seen by five witnesses who saw a spinning disc traveling at great speed through the air.

The Roswell Incident took place in Roswell, New Mexico on July 7, 1947 when an airborne object crashed near a ranch.

The crash was attributed to a United States military surveillance balloon, but the most famous explanation is that a spacecraft carrying extraterrestrial life crashed.

Maybe the rest of the flock of space ships traveled on for a quick spin in Ireland?
