Where the present mill of Slane is there was the greatest flour mill in Ireland.

Where the present mill of Slane is there was the greatest flour mill in Ireland.
The account books were kept beautifully, and the manager's name was "Wetherell".
When the first Mass was being celebrated in the Yellow Furze church, some unearthly being frightened the people.
It was Fr. Sheridan that was saying Mass and he did his utmost to bring back the frightened people.
It was said that it was the devil that frightened them, but some people said that the Church was built on the site of an old graveyard.
James White - Flynn's cross told me that his grandfather was present at the Mass.
