An Irish astronomer, Dr. Eamonn Ansbro, has urged the government to monitor alleged UFO hotspots over Ireland.
According to the Irish Mirror, Ansbro, an astronomer who has studied UFO phenomena for many years, advised the Irish government to give more attention to increasing reports of activity over the country.
He alleged that sightings were more common in some parts of the country than others. He urged that parts of the country with a significantly higher prevalence of UFO sightings should get more attention.
Ireland’s UFO hotspots
According to Ansbro, an area of Ireland with relatively high UFO traffic was the municipal district of West Cork in County Cork.
West Cork is a tourist destination covering multiple towns such as Bantry, Dunmanway, Schull, Castletownbere, and Skibbereen.
Other hotspots include the area around Lough Key, a lake north of County Roscommon, near Boyle town.
The astronomer also identified south Kerry, another popular tourist destination in County Kerry, as an area with high traffic going by the incidence of reported sightings.
He added that the sky over Dublin was also very active.
The authorities are aware of UFO activity
Ansbro alleged that the Irish authorities are aware of the high UFO traffic over the country. He argued that the government could not continue ignoring the reality and that they needed to address it.
The researcher said that the unwillingness in official circles to talk about UFOs meant that many people who saw them did not know where to report their experiences.
He suggested that the authorities needed to promote public conversation about the strange activities in the sky.
He urged the Irish Department of Defense to set up reporting centers or hotlines that people could call to report sightings.
Ansbro claimed to have sighted many alien crafts over Ireland
Ansbro backed up his claim about high UFO traffic over Ireland, saying he has sighted many alien crafts in the sky.
The astronomer, who runs an observatory in Boyle, County Roscommon, said the government was aware of the activity over the country.
He argued that the authorities refused to acknowledge UFOs probably because they felt it was a strange phenomenon outside “their radar.”
He compared the situation in Ireland with the U.S., saying that Americans and their government were paying more attention to UFOs.
The U.S. government has become more open about it in recent years.
Growing UFO awareness
The comments by the researcher come amid growing public awareness and increasingly open discussion about UFOs in the U.S. following sensational claims by the whistleblower David Grusch.
Grusch claimed the U.S. government recovered “non-human origin technical vehicles” from crash sites.
Paranormal Papers reported that a group of senators led by Kirsten Gillibrand announced they had secured funding for the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) established to investigate UFOs.
The senators hoped that adequate funding for AARO would improve monitoring and reporting. They also hoped that regular congressional briefings would remove the stigma associated with discussing UFOs.
