I knew Major Blackwell and visited Ross House near Westport Ireland in around 1991. These stories are true. My mother also heard the maid servants voices and this was before we knew anything about the haunted history of this house. Skeptical as usual, I asked her, " what makes you think the voices weren't living people?" She said they were speaking Gaelic. She also asked my sister and I not to mention anything to our hosts for she didn't want to seem like a nutcase. But later when Mika Blackwell gave us a tour she told us some history, especially as I started to creep uncomfortably close to the tomb, I blurted out that my mother had heard ghosts. Since that time I know many more much, much scarier stories that occurred there when Joe Blackwell's daughter and friend played the ouiji board at the tomb. I can't even explain those one, but it suffices to say that it took an exorcism before anyone could re-enter the house.
