She died a few months after marrying. Then the house turned out to be haunted and Lyons had to leave it. He put a chimney in azine stall and up to this day it is there his people live. They made a stall of the new house but he knocked one room of it the reason I don't know. Some people used to say the reason it was haunted was its being built of the stones of the "Cathair Geal". There is not much of a wall around it today but you could plainly see the circle. What it was for I never found out. Some say they were pounds for cattle made by the Danes. There is another of its kind in the lands of the Buckleys of Toor and Meenanaor (Mín an Ár) but not as big - about three Quarters of ground. A boundary fence runs through the centre of it. It is covered with bushes + trees. It is also in a very elevated place like the "Cathair Geal". It was said wherever there was one of its kind there was two others in the view but I could point out no other only those two.
