There is a field on the lands of
Mr Hickey which was a rath one
time.
One night there was a fellow
passing by this rath, and he saw the fairies hurling.
They wanted another man to
complete the two teams, so they
brought in the man, and put him
on one of the teams.
The man couldn't hurl at all,
and the fairies hurled him around the field.

There is also a field on Mr
Hickey's land in which there was an old town and churchyard one time
Mr Hickey has a stone off Michael Dwyer's grave which is in Sydney, Australia.
