- There is a lis in Andy Keane’s field in Coad, and is made of earth and stones. There is a Cathair in Coad between Collins’ and Keatings’ and the place it is in is called “Tullán.” It is said that all the fairies in Ireland used meet there to hurl and play football, but one team should have a living man. One day the Co. Clare team of fairies and the Galway team met. The Clare team had a living man. He was the best footballer in Ireland. They played for a long time, and Clare won the game. It was the living man that won it for them. There is a Cathair in Collins’ land and there is a tall stone standing beside it. This stone is called ”the Liagán.” It is said there is a wealthy giant buried under it.
