- There are a number of forts in this district.
There is a fort in Lisrobin and another
remarkable one in Lisdangon in the parish
of Newmarket in the (barony) Barony of
Duhallow and in the Co. of Cork.
It is very large, it is surrounded with a
fence of furze and stones with an entrance
of stepping stones into several appartments
under ground. There are doors dividing
the rooms. People are supposed to have
seen fairies or good people and music
was heard and cat calls also. There
are a number of stories told about a
fort in Gooseberry Hill in the parish
of Meelin in the Barony of Duhallow
and in the Co. of Cork. The man that
owned the farm died. His land and
cattle were to be sold as he left his money
for the present altar in Newmarket Church.
All the cattle were to be taken to the fair to
be sold, but they could not be taken. The
cattle returned home and went into the fort,
and a horse that Maurice Fitz Patrict, Taur
purchased could not be taken off the
land. It took five men to remove him,
and the cattle had to be left there(continues on next page)Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
