There is a field in the Parish of Killusty called Ballin - Clare, and in some part of that field, there is supposed to be a spring well, which was closed some time ago, and several attempts were made to find it, and if it could be found it would be a grand benefit to its surroundings, and there is a sum of money hidden near the well belonging to the people who were exiled from that farm in olden times.
