About fifty or sixty years ago, a leipreehaun used be seen in a field near Dan Williams's wood in Kiltankin. Several people tried to catch him but he disappeared through the ground. People say that if you could catch a Leipreehaun, for they always keep a purse of gold with them you could keep it.

Years ago there were men coming from a wake in Kiltankin. They saw four hurling matches. There were green hurleys, blue hurleys, white hurleys, and red hurleys.
The red and white hurling-men, beat the green and blue hurling-men. This happened in Phil-pots lios in Kiltankin.
