  1. My father told me that there was a man one time, and his name was John Walshe. He lives in Mohernagh. One night he was going into Moloneys night-walking. He had to pass a fort. He saw a big row of steps, he saw small men going up and down the steps. He was afraid of them, and he lighted a match, and one of the little men took him by the hand and led him into a big beautiful palace, there he got tea and sweet cake. Then one of the little men conveyed him into Moloneys, and he stayed at Moloneys that night.
