Den Shea from Bunaw

Long ago there was a man by the name of Denis Shea who lived east of Mike Mccarty. Every night he used go out walking. His father died in the 26st of June and he went out a few nights after that. He was going up. Near Felix Mccarty at Direenatolog road, and he saw a white woman crossing the toad. He ran home and jumped into bed, and he died a week after that with the shock he got.
Neil O Sullivan got this story from Paddy Shea Bunaw aged 79 years.
