Is it a prank or a poltergeist? That is what many are asking after a school posted surveillance video of a strange happening in its hallways.

Deerpark Christian Brothers School in Cork, Ireland, shared footage of an event it can't explain on YouTube, just weeks before Halloween.

In the video, you see lockers shake and papers fly without a person in sight.

Upon first seeing the footage, Deerpark deputy principal Aaron Wolfe told he sent the clip to principal Kevin Barry in disbelief.

"If it is a prank, it’s very well done," he told

"The school is built on a site known as Green Gallows,'' Wolfe told them. "In the 19th century, criminals were hanged here. We only found that out on Monday. The pub nearby is actually called 'The Gallows.'"
