So great was the force that it reached Glanworth (a distance of about 10 miles) and is there embedded in the earth.
(Béinn na Sgeithe is about mid-way between Glenville & Mallow) A friend also told me that when she was on a visit to "the Gap" between Tipperary & Waterford, she was shown a part where "Petticoat Loose" also was supposed to have frequented, so that the name is known over a wide ares.Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
- Tobar Fearann(?) One of the fields on this farm (formerly owned by Dunleas) is called "Tobar Fearann" from a well which is in the field. This well is at one side of a disused stone quarry and has a beautiful spring of water, but the story goes that the original site of the well was at the opposite side of the quarry. It was then venerated as a Holy Well & people paid rounds, but one woman desecrated the well by washing clothes in it & it disappeared, till a priest prayed over the spot and next morning the well reappeared, but at the opposite side It is not now regarded as a Blessed Well.Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
- At the boundary between Ardnageehy and Condonstown, three streams meet, one comes form Condonstown direction, one from Lacan, & one from Ardhageehy. At the junction, there is a stone, worn smooth by the waters. B. Dunlea used to say that anyone who wanted to get rid of WARTS need only rub the affected parts to this stone.Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
