There is a Dun near Stream'stown bay, which is situated on Paddy Connelly's field.
There was once a castle situated in the field. It was owened by Grainne Ui Maille.
O'Fhaherty had a another castle on the other side of the bay.
Grainne Ui Maille and her men were at tea one evening and OFhaherty came across the bay with his men.
He went in the windows and door and broke the castle of Grainne Ui Maille and her men and killed them. Some of the walls are standing there yet.
I heard this story from my father who lives in Moyard.
