In the house of a man called Cullen, in the townland of Knockhall, a ghost, in the form of a massive turkey with wings trailing along the ground, used to appear.

In the house of a man called Cullen, in the townland of Knockhall, a ghost, in the form of a massive turkey with wings trailing along the ground, used to appear. For years the ghostly bird hovered in one of the rooms of this house. The priest "settled" this spirit and confined it to one room in the house and this room was always kept locked. People lived in it during the time the ghostly turkey fequented it. The house is now deserted ruin.
