The place I live in is called Sheshia. The name of it in Irish is Poll an Uisge. It is in the townland of Bellharbour. There are are many cowls around here. About a mile from our house there are the ruins of 44 houses.
There is the ruin of Corcamroe Abbey. It was built in the 12 Centuary. It is in ruins now. Monks were living in it first.
My grandfather can speak Irish well. He is over seventy years. He remembers when there was 11 houses in Ballyhaehan and there are only five or six in it now.
