About ninety years ago, there was a man from Carndonagh coming from Buncrana. As he came towards the 'twin bridges', in the Meentaghs, Clonmany, a little man in a red cloak came out and asked him to come in.
The man went in and there was a coffin on the ground. The little man gave him a long pipe and, after sitting a little while the fairies said that the man would carry the coffin, and when the came to the church the man gave the coffin again to the fairies, who disappeared.
