About 193 years ago Michael Lynch, Rathmore, buried his brother in another mans grave plot. The man that owned the plot was Richard. He made Lynch take up his brother's body and bury it in his own graveyard. After a few years Conlon died and was buried in the place where the man was taken up. All his family were in bad luck after that and they all died shortly after.
