Ballygally ghost

A few years back a friend and I were taking a drive along the coast road from Larne towards Ballygally, we’ve driven this road many times and the scenery is breath taking . It was early evening and still good light around, we were talking away about work etc, when we were approaching Ballygally ‘head’ as its locally known, I caught sight of a woman at the side of the road, dressed in white with dark hair. When I got closer it was like she swung round and was surprised to make eye contact with me. However she seemed to disappear into a large rock. I looked at my friend and asked if he had just seen what I had? And he agreed that he saw exactly what I had saw. I drove on a little further and turned the car around to go back and investigate. We both got out of the car at the rock where the lady had disappeared and had a good look around. There was an eerie atmosphere and I remember It was completely silent for several moments, not even the sound of the sea splashing against the rocks, it was like a dream. We got back in the car and continued on our journey discussing what we both had seen. To this day neither of us can explain what we saw in Ballygally other than an encounter with a ghost/spirit. We would love to know if anyone else has had any similar experiences around Ballygally or have seen the Ballygally ghost.
