Once a man was coming home from Donegal with a horse and cart. After some time he met another man and the man said “Good night men.” The man in the cart said “where do you see the men,” and the other man said “I saw another man walking behind the cart.”

So the two men looked in the cart and everywhere about it but they could see nobody.
Long ago there was a man murdered at this spot near Morrow’s house and the mans ghost was seen here for years after.
