An Old fort. 29-10-37

My mother told me a story about the Lisheen that is in my own land, that was told to her by her mother, who was my grandmother. Lisheen means a little fort. One night two men were going past it and they saw fairies and they were kicking football and playing music, and some of them were dancing. It was a fine moonlight night.
And also some hundreds of years ago there was a monastery there where monks lived. There is a lot of trees all round it.
