One night in the month of October, about seventeen years ago, a woman named Mrs Carton went out to meet her daughter, who was in town.
All of a sudden the Banshee started to wail inside a ditch.
She went on a little further, an' she met a messenger saying that a woman named Mrs Levingstone had just died.
This was the woman who owned the field in which the banshee wailed.
