There is an ancient building in the parish of Maghercloone called Coolderry House. While one of the servants was asleep in bed he was suddenly awakened by a great noise. On awakening he felt a great weight upon him. That night a great hump grew on his back. This man is still living and the hump is to be seen still on his back.
