There is a beech tree on a ditch which divides Mr Colwells land from Mr Timmons in the townland of Arch-Hall in the parish of Kilbarry. There is a branch on this tree on which leaves never grow. In the Penal days a priest named Father Enright" was hanged from this branch, and the mark of the steel rope which was used can still be seen on it.
