- One of the ghost stories I have heard in Bannow is as followsOne day some girls went for a walk to the Old Church of Bannow. One of the girls started to dance on one of the flat tomb-stones.She then sat down on the tomb-stone and she heard a voice which came from under the tombstone saying "Keep off my head." The girl got a great fright and she nearly fainted.
When she went home she had to go to bed.She was in bed for months and she died before the year was endedTranscribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
- Almost every household in Bannow has a "trap" - a rather wide, flat, light spring car with very wide laces. The car is drawn by a pony which invariably trots at great speed - often carrying five persons. Donkeys draw smaller traps. The occupants of the traps sit with their legs hanging outside - even girls and women. In wet weather the women sit in body of trap which invariably has fine bed of dry straw covered with a rug.
