you can see two others.
There is one fort in my district in
Mr. John O'Carroll's land of Glencarney
in the parish of Clonfert in the Co.
of Cork. This fort is surrounded with

at one side. Nobody ever went into
it for fear of fairies.
There is a fort in Lisdangan in the
parish of Clonfert in the Co. of Cork,
there are many tales connected with
A man with a hump who was
living in that district often heard
singing in the fort. One day he began
to sing with them but the singing
stopped suddenly. A few moments
later he heard a voice saying
take the hump off him. That moment
he was able to stand upright.Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
