Told by : Mr O'Daly, Shercock Rd., Carrickmacross

Bleeding Stone :-
About half a mile outside the town of Carrickmacross on the Shercock Road, the bleeding stone is situated. It is said that a man was hung over the stone because he refused to pay his rent. When a person spits or throws water on this stone it turns to blood.
