  1. Legends
    (1) At Sunny Side of Golden River - Three Danes, a father and 2 sons were captured and were being pressed for secret of a lovely wine, known only to the 3. The father told their captors to kill his 2 sons first, and he would then give the secret. This was done, but he then refused, and was himself killed. By his ruse, he knew the secret would die with him.
    (2) There is a Fairy Tree in Willie Donnelly's - said you will be haunted if you forget to bless yourself.
