  1. In a field beside Kilchreest Churchyard and in the the townland of Carrokilla there stood, up to thirty years ago three very large stones - limestone "Carrigs".
    It was said that these stones marked three "hop" jumps, taken by Conor Collins.
    The jumps were so long that it would come very hard for any one of the present generation to believe that they were made by any human being.
