- A tunnel was supposed to connect Moneyhore graveyard with Furlong's, of Templescoby - the entrance is said to have been about Furlong's dairy window. The tradition is that monks took refuge there in the Penal Days & that they were captured by the soldiers, but that the Sacred Vessels were not discovered, & they are believed to be buried in the tunnel. Sitting on the pier of Doran's (Moneyhore) back avenue, a man very frequently scared the people around. Workmen, if kept late, often preferred to sit up all night & play cards rather than go past the place. Last appearance 1916.
