  1. There is an old Churchyard at Irishtown and it is called Chapel Castle. There were headstones in it and about seventy years ago the present Mr Shuttleworth's father took the headstones to make windowsill's for his new house. Every morning when Mr Shuttleworth got up. The windowsills were taken out and left back in Chapel Castle. There is no entrance to this Churchyard only a big hedge round it and when people were dead they would have to be lifted across it.
