On the corner of the Ballyogan Road is a high wall which is the outside wall of a house. There are no windows or doors in it. There was a doorway but it is now filled up. Over the doorway is a slab and on it is written "Content in a cottage and envy to no one, Built 1772" A noble lady lived here at that time. She married her coachman and all her friends left her. She then put up the stone.
