About two months ago a guard was walking down (a guard) Kilkeely road at night- time. He suddenly saw a hearse coming towards him and people dressed in white were standing on the side of the hearse.
There was a graveyard by the roadside and the horses stopped outside. All the people in white went into the graveyard and dug a grave. Then they buried something. The freshly dug grave can be seen there now and people are afraid to open it.
