In a field belonging to Eddie Coffey of Roundfield, Monivea, there is a Lios built on a hill and surrounded by hawthorn bushes. One big hollow surrounds the Lios and in the hollow there is a big hawthorn bush. It is said that if anyone should cut that bush he would never have any luck. People say fairies inhabit it.
