Old Irish Tale.
(Skerries, Co. Dublin)
In Lusk there is a very high Tower about two hundred feet high. It is said that St. Maculinn jumped from the top of it to the back of the barracks about half a mile away. His foot-print is there still, and when he tried to jump back his face hit the middle of the Tower so hard that the print of it can be seen to this very day.
