A man by the name of Tom Wall was drowned in the river Suir about thirty years ago. He was supposed to have thrown himself into the river. The police were searcing for the body for days but could not find any trace of it. This night a man named Beston dreamt that he saw the drowned man in a certain spot. Early in the morning John Beston went down to the river and there he saw the dead body floating in the water.
