Once there was a boy living in Inchinteskin and he did not belief in Ghosts. He used be out very late at night, so his father told him that something would happen to him some night if he would not be in early other night. He didn't do what his father told him he always came in late. One night he was coming towards the house he saw the crowd coming towards him and they told him to hurry on and to go home that there were three women coming down the hill and that there was one bad woman there and that she would kill him. He went home and told his parents and he never was out late again.
