There was a man living in (living) Kilfinane and he had an awful lot of money. He used to always keep his door locked in case anyone would rob him. When he was getting old he never went out. One day as a neighbour was passing he heard moans inside and he tried to get in but it was useless as the door was locked and bolted. He went for the priest and when the priest came he had to get a ladder to get in through the window. He annointed him and in a few minutes later he died.
