One time there lived a man near Lucan town, and he had a horse. Every day this man went around the field on his horse. My Grandfather and Grandmother were alive at the time and were crossing the field, but just as they were going out the gap, the man's spirit came around the field and stopped beside them at the gap for the man had died a few days before. They stopped crossing the field ever after.
