There was a man going to Millstreet fair from Ballyvourney one morning. It was very dark. When he was passing the Pike, a black pig jumped into the car to him. He tried to chase him away, but it failed him.
After a while the pig drew nearer to him and told him not to tell a living soul what he saw. The man went to the fair , and came home late in the evening.
Next morning at breakfast it was troubling him, and he told his daughter what he saw. After breakfast he went out to feed his horse, and when he reached the stable the horse kicked him and he was killed instantly!
