Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Dirtane County, Kerry, Ireland, in 1965, in the afternoon, a 12-year old girl on her way back to school heard a peculiar tapping sound coming from a nearby ditch, she went over to investigate and there she saw a very small man dressed in green and red clothing. He appeared to be doing something on the ground. The witness quickly departed.

Albert Rosales indicates as source "Scott S Smith, Fate March 1993."

Points to consider:

Scott S. Smith is a photographer who wrote articles on the "paranormal" for magazines such as "Fate" and authored a book "The Soul of Your Pet: Evidence for the Survival of Animals in the Afterlife" in which he claimed animals have a "soul" anf their dead "ghosts" can haunt places.

Obviously, the information is tiny, a 12-year-old girl is not a reliable witness, and no re-investigation can take place to check whether she really saw something and what it was.
