There is a mass path on our bog. It is a lonely lane which people went to mass long ago to Togher Wood. There are plenty of stones and sticks there yet. When people were cutting the turf on the bog a few years ago they found sticks there. The mass path goes out in a field and that field is called Church Field. There are ruins of an old graveyard there too.
