Long ago near Clifden Castle a man was killed with a knife. He was killed on Christmas night and he is seen every christmas night dressed in coat of mail and a knife in his heart. He sits on a chair made of rock and in front of him a table made of rock also. He had a hat of brass on his head. A man saw him a few years ago. He was never seen afterwards.
