    It is said that where "Lough Lee" is there was a village once. The people who lived in the village were very wicked and bad and it was flooded one day. There was a man who had some sons and they were pipers but the sons were not home the day that the village was flooded and they were not drowned. The pipers were drowned at "Claisín na bPíobaire" and every nine years the are heard playing their pipes. "Claisín na bPíobaire" got its name from the pipers.
