The Irishcentral story on the American woman who believes she captured the image of Jesus on the Cliffs of Moher has gone viral on the Internet and gone all around the world.
Huffington Post has featured it as its number one story of the day and Yahoo News and The Daily Mail have also given it extensive coverage as have numerous other outlets.
Our original story reported how airline pilot Sandra Clifford from San Francisco visited the cliffs in early November and took several pictures that appeared to show the face of a Jesus like figure.
Local bar owners and customers she showed the photographs to said they had never seen anything like it -- nor have any tourists since.
Teresa O’Flaherty of Gus O’Connor’s pub said that she believed it was “very definitely an image of Christ” when, after being shown the image by Clifford she went to the Cliffs to see for herself.
