The Canadian Ambassador to Ireland believes his official residence in Dublin is being haunted by the ghost of Padraig Pearse.

The ambassador describes hearing unusual bangs, laboured breathing and heavy footsteps in the residence's halls in a recent social media post.

"Ghosts. I never believed in ghosts. Until I arrived here," he said.

Pearse was one of the architects of the April 1916 rebellion to overthrow British rule and set up an Irish republic.

Over 450 people were killed during the six-day armed struggle and more than 2,600 were injured.

Patrick Pearse was executed in 1916
