The Headless Ghost of Mary Gallagher Back in June 1879, two Montreal prostitutes, Susan Kennedy and Mary Gallagher, were drinking in a Griffintown bar with a john named Michael Flanagan. Despite the three spending the night together, Susan Kennedy became overcome with jealously, and in a drunken rage, brutally hacked at Mary Gallagher with an axe, eventually decapitating her. Legend has it, that every seven years since her murder, the ghost of Mary Gallagher has walked the streets of Griffintown, visiting her old address on the corner of Rue Murray and William, searching for her lost head.
