A good deal of old talk was round a family called Manning who lived in a lane now called "Glenlion" about 35 or 40 years ago.
The father died and it is said that at his death great disturbance was felt around the place like a small earth quake in fact.
It was also said that the Rosary in the house was a very lengthy proceeding because as the members of the family were all deaf no one knew what any one else was saying and so the same prayers were repeated many times.
